Nigel Carter

Nigel Carter is the Head of Molecular Cytogenetics at the Sanger Centre, Cambridge UK and is currently the Secretary of the International Society for Analytical Cytology. Receiving his BA and D.Phil degrees from the University of York where he specialised in parasitology, Nigel became interested in flow cytometry when he was appointed to the Nuffield Department of Surgery at the University of Oxford in 1981. In 1989, Nigel took up a post in the Department of Pathology, University of Cambridge to use molecular cytogenetic technologies to study human karyotype abnormalities. Nigel's work in this field has involved the application of digital microscopy to fluorescence in situ hybridisation and the development of flow cytometry for chromosome sorting for the generation of chromosome-specific DNA libraries and paints.
