Dr Savory’s research examines how transcription factors work during development. Since joining the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, she has investigated the upstream control mechanisms and downstream effects of Cdx genes, a key transcription factor family responsible for growth and patterning of the developing vertebrate embryo. She also teaches a range of topics in human anatomy and physiology to undergraduate students from several faculties.
