Dr Bernard Corfe joined the University of Sheffield as a lecturer in 2002 following training in molecular pharmacology. Dr Crofe is now editor for European Journal of Nutrition, Nutrition and Cancer, International Journal of Experimental Pathology and Journal of Integrated Omics journals.
Dr Corfe's research training was in microbial molecular biology and his first postdoc was in Sheffield with Professor Anne Moir in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. Dr Corfe subsequently worked with Professor Caroline Dive in Manchester, studying the regulation of apoptosis in response to chemotherapeutic drugs. It was through this research that he became interested in the regulation of apoptosis by butyrate.
