Dr Alexander Gray Bsc PhD Born in Scotland educated at the University of Edinburgh PhD 1987, worked as a post doc at University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow Welcome unit of Molecular Parasitology, Roslin Research Institute and the University of Dundee. In my current position as Principal Investigator in the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science I am focusing on forensic DNA techniques as my main research interests in the past have centred around molecular biology, specifically DNA manipulation methods and biochemistry related to cellular signalling.
