Chris Horton
Lecturer in Medicine

Profile

I completed a BA in Medical Sciences at Trinity College, Oxford in 2016 and now study Clinical Medicine at Green Templeton College, Oxford.

Teaching

I teach the Principles of Pathology course to 2nd year medical students and have previously provided revision tutorials to 1st year medical students. With another Trinity alumnus, I am currently developing a web-based anatomy revision resource for the medical school.

Research

During my time at Trinity College, I worked as a student researcher under Professor Fairchild, developing novel methods to generate functional immune cells from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). I continue to work in Professor Fairchild’s laboratory in my spare time.
