Me | James Ross
I was born in 1965, and grew up on Vancouver Island, where two inches of rain is considered a light shower. I completed a Bachelors degree in Physiology at Queens University in 1984, then worked in Ottawa for a year and a half before moving to Edinburgh to do an M.Sc. in Genomics and Pathway Biology, which I completed in 1986.
I spent the next six years working as a researcher in the Edinburgh Centre for Integrative Physiology; my main focus to exploit rapid advances in the enabling technologies available from genomics, proteomics, imaging and informatics to allow development of predictive modelling and in vivo analysis to understand the function of gene products at the cell, organ and whole animal level.
I also worked on a Ph.D. in Integrative Physiology, which I completed in 1992, and started writing for the popular press. These experiences have shaped my career and research interests ever since.
I was recently a nominee in the poster prize at the British Neuroendocrine Society annual conference held on 15th and 16th September 2008 at the University of Briston
Between 2000 and 2004, I moved my family to Harrisburg, PA to move nearer to my parents. During these years, I founded the "InnerHealth" training school for paramedics and nurses in Harrisburg Pennsylvania.
More importantly, on October 2, 2007, my wife Rachel Wilson and I became the proud and happy parents of Evelyn Ross.
