Lesley Anne Glover - Biography#

Anne Glover studied at Edinburgh University (UK) for a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry 1974-78 and then studied at Cambridge University (UK) where she obtained a Doctorate in Molecular Microbiology 1978-81.
She has pursued a career in scientific research at Aberdeen University (UK) where she took up the post of Lecturer in 1983 becoming a Professor in 2001.

Most of her academic career has been spent at the University of Aberdeen where she has an active research group pursuing a variety of areas from microbial diversity to the development and application of whole cell biosensors (biological sensors) for environmental monitoring and investigating how organisms respond to stress at a cellular level. In her research she has investigated how proteins are synthesised and directed to the correct location within our cells, the diversity and function of the microbial population in soil, the development of biological sensors (biosensors) to detect environmental pollution and more recently, how we respond to stress at the molecular level. This current area of research has particular relevance to how we age (our cells are under stress in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease) and also how we respond to artificial stresses such as chemotherapy.

In 1999 she commercialised some of her biosensor technology into a successful company which diagnoses environmental pollution and provides solutions for its clean-up.
