UEA alumna Professor Karen Duff on her career history

Happy International Women and Girls in Science Day!

To celebrate, here’s Professor Karen Duff (a UEA alumna and now Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University). Karen visited UEA in November last year as part of BIO’s Open Lecture series, and recorded a short segment for us about her career path.

Here she describes her ‘love affair’ with genetics, including her growing interest in chromosome 21 and Alzheimer’s disease, her time at UEA, and the importance of flexibility in developing a career in science.
