Former Daphne Jackson Fellow and Trustee for the Daphne Jackson Trust, Pia Ostergaard, has today been promoted to Professor in Human Genetics & Head of Genetics Research Centre at St George’s, University of London.

Pia was awarded a Daphne Jackson Fellowship in 2005, sponsored by the Medical Research Council, after a career break taken for her young children. After completing her Fellowship, which saw her make a change from zoology to human genetics, Pia continued her research into the genetics of primary lymphoedema, on a part-time basis in collaboration with St George’s Hospital, London whilst also working part-time for the Daphne Jackson Trust as Senior Fellowship Advisor. Her career continued to flourish and she was promoted to lecturer in Human Genetics at St George’s in 2013, senior lecturer in 2015 and Reader in 2017.

Dr Katie Perry, Trust Chief Executive, says: “Huge Congratulations to Pia on her very well-deserved promotion to Professor. I always knew Pia was an outstanding and talented Fellow from when I first met her fifteen years ago, and it is very rewarding and a real personal highlight for me to see her achieve this in her career.”
