Professor Evan Reid

Professor of neurogenetics and molecular neurobiology at the department of clinical genetics

I am an honorary consultant in genomic medicine at CUH, looking after patients with genetic conditions. I am also a professor of neurogenetics and molecular neurobiology at the University of Cambridge.

My current role

I cover the general genetics clinic for the North West Norfolk area and provide a specialist neurogenetics clinic at Addenbrooke's hospital, where I mostly see patients who have hereditary spastic paraplegias and cerebellar ataxias.

In the lab, my group studies the molecular cellular pathology of hereditary neurological conditions, where we aim to understand how the inner machinery of the cells is disrupted to cause neurological disease.

Previous history

I have been an honorary consultant at CUH since 2000. Before that, I was a senior registrar / lecturer in clinical genetics from 1995, during which time I completed a PhD studying the molecular genetics of conditions called hereditary spastic paraplegias.

I moved to that post from Yorkhill hospital in Glasgow, where I was a registrar in medical genetics. Prior to that, I completed junior senior house officer posts in adult medicine at the royal and western infirmaries in Glasgow. I graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 1991.

Membership and accreditations

I am a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Personal interests

When I'm not at work, I enjoy walking, cycling, skiing and spending time with my family.
