Annette is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Auckland.  She studied for her PhD at the University of Cambridge and then came to NZ after being offered a position at NZ’s first Biotechnology company, Genesis R&D.  Five years ago she returned to academia to work with Professor Cristin Print at the University of Auckland to study breast cancer.  In particular, Annette is working in the fast-paced field of “cancer genomics”, where her work is aimed at identifying new biomarkers and new drug targets for breast cancer.
