Stephen George Oliver FMedSci FAAAS (born 3 November 1949) is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge,[6] director of the Cambridge Systems Biology Centre[7] and a Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge.[3][8]

Education[edit]

Oliver was educated at the University of Bristol gaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology in 1971 followed by a PhD from the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in 1974.[9]

Research[edit]

Oliver's areas of research include functional genomics, systems biology[10][11][12][13][14] and drug discovery[15][16][17][18][19][20] using the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae[21] which he has worked on since the 1970s.[22] In 1992, whilst working at UMIST, Oliver led the team which provided first complete sequence analysis of an entire chromosome from any organism.[23] More recently he has also been involved in the creation of a Robot Scientist[2][24] and has been awarded research funding as principal investigator or co-investigator with a total value of over £26 million by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.[25]
