James Hadfield's Biography

James Hadfield, Head, Genomics Core Facility, Cancer Research UK

James got his degree in 1995 at the University of East Anglia. His career has leant towards technology development and implementation. He developed a differential PCR test for ErbB2 copy number analysis at the same time as real-time PCR came along, a poor choice in hindsight! Over ten years he worked at the Royal London on Diabetes genetics, the Cambridge University Department of Pathology on MHC and NK cells and the John Innes Centre on Wheat disease resistance gene cloning. In 2001 he set up a spotted and Affymetrix microarray facility at JIC, whilst there he helped set up the UK Affy user group and also won a Biotech competition ( and hopes one-day to start a business. Although none of his ideas have come to anything yet! In 2006 James moved to set up the genomics facility at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, University of Cambridge. The lab offers broad spectrum genomic services and Illumina next-generation sequencing for scientists at CRUK-CI, Gurdon, MRC-LMB, Plant Sciences and across the University of Cambridge. James has two kids and lives in Norfolk, which is a lot nearer the coast than Cambridge.
