Anjali Gupta Hinch

Group Leader / Sir Henry Dale and Wellcome-Beit Fellow

Work summary

Anjali is a group leader and Sir Henry Dale Fellow, supported by the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society. She was awarded the Wellcome Beit Prize in 2021.  

Anjali is interested in germline DNA changes, which include de novo mutation and recombination. Her lab uses a combination of computational and experimental approaches towards understanding the biological mechanisms underlying mutation and recombination, and their impacts on human health and the evolution of species.
