Stephen Yarwood obtained his PhD from the University of Glasgow in 1998 based on work carried out at the Hannah Research Institute on hormonal- and growth factor-controlled fat cell development. Following this he undertook a three year Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the laboratory of Professor Miles Houslay, studying protein-protein interactions within the hormone-regulated cyclic AMP signalling pathway. After being appointed to a Lectureship in the University of Glasgow in 1999, he took research leave, funded by a Human Frontiers Science Program Fellowship (November 1999-January 2001), in the laboratory of Professor Jim Woodgett, at the Ontario Cancer Institute, Toronto, Canada. There he investigated the impact of extracellular matrix on global gene expression patterns in cells undergoing growth factor treatment. Since returning from Canada his research has been aimed at understanding the molecular control of disease processes by cyclic AMP, including chronic inflammation associated with atherosclerosis and bone health associated with diabetes.
