Stuart Macdonald is the Director of the Genomics and Bioinformatics Laboratory and an Associate Professor in the Molecular Biosciences Department at the University of Kansas.
Dr. Macdonald joined KU in 2006 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to joining KU, Stuart was an undergraduate at the University of Oxford (1994-1997), a PhD student also at Oxford (1997-2000), a postdoctoral fellow at University College London (2000-2001), and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California - Irvine (2001-2006).
