Yanick CrowYanick Crow qualified in medicine from Newcastle in 1991. He obtained his MRCP in adult medicine in Glasgow, worked in paediatrics in Stirling, and then undertook training in clinical genetics at Yorkhill Hospital, Glasgow (1996−1999). Inspired by Professor John Stephenson and Dr John Tolmie, he became interested in neurogenetics, and subsequently moved to Leeds where he undertook a PhD on the genetics of Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) with Dr Geoff Woods and Sir Alex Markham. Between 2001 and 2006, he was a full-time NHS consultant in the Yorkshire Regional Genetics Service, at which point he took up a post as a senior lecturer in the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine working closely with Professor David Bonthron.

In 2008, he became Professor of Medical Genetics at the University of Manchester. More recently, Yanick has taken a post at the Institut Imagine at the Hôpital Necker in Paris. Yanick’s research focuses on conditions encountered in paediatric neurogenetic practice. His work on AGS has proved of wider scientific interest by helping to define novel pathways linking nucleic acid metabolism to immune stimulation.
