Professor Peter Cook

Academic Profile

I spent a year with Voluntary Service Overseas (working for the Indian Government, Department of Community Development) in a village outside Lucknow before reading Biochemistry as an undergraduate at Balliol College (Oxford) in the nineteen-sixties. I then studied for a D. Phil. in The Sir William Dunn School of Pathology (Oxford). I have since held various positions in the Dunn School associated with different fellowships (Stothert Research Fellow of The Royal Society, Platnauer Junior Research Fellow of Brasenose College, Senior Research Fellow of Brasenose College, EP Abraham Professor of Cell Biology at Lincoln, Supernumerary Fellow of Lincoln); I am currently Professor of Cell Biology.
