Jeff Errington

Prof Jeff Errington FRS has focused his research career on resolving fundamental questions about the structure and function of bacterial cells, especially endospore formation, chromosome replication and segregation, cell division and cell morphogenesis. After 25 years at the University of Oxford, he moved to Newcastle University (UK) as scientific founder and Director of the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology, the world’s first major research centre focused specifically on the molecular and cellular biology of bacteria. Last year he moved to the University of Sydney with an ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship, to continue and expand his work on L-form bacteria. Errington’s contributions to basic science have been recognized by election to various learned societies, including Fellowship of the Royal Society, EMBO, and both the European and American Academies of Microbiology. He has also founded two successful spin-out companies, Prolysis Ltd, and Demuris Ltd, which was recently acquired by US-based Odyssey Therapeutics.
