BSc (Glasgow), PhD (London)
Raymond Dalgleish grew up in the outskirts of Glasgow and did his undergraduate degree in Cell Biology at the University of Glasgow. However, a stint as a summer student, during the summer of 1976 at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, convinced him that his real interest lay in molecular genetics. He completed his PhD in 1980 at St Mary's Hospital Medical School, London under the supervision of Bob Williamson, cloning human globin cDNA and gene sequences.
In 1980, he was awarded a Fogarty Fellowship to allow him to undertake his post-doctoral studies at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Working in the Pulmonary Branch, of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, he cloned and analysed cDNA and genomic sequences for human collagen types I and III.
In 1984 he was appointed to the post of Lecturer in the Department of Genetics, continuing his work on collagen genes specifically with respect to sequence variants that result in inherited connective tissue disorders. This work resulted in the setting up of databases of gene variants that give rise to osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) and to some of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS). The data were initially collected for just three genes but this has now expanded to twelve and there are plans to further extend the repertoire. These variant data can be view at Osteogenesis Imperfecta Variant Database and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Variant Database.
