Peter Visscher, PhD

Professor and Chair, Quantitative Genetics at the University of Queensland
Senior Principal Research Fellow, NHMRC

Peter Visscher's undergraduate studies were in the Netherlands. He moved to Edinburgh (UK) in 1987 for an MSc and subsequent PhD in animal breeding and genetics, working on the estimation of genetic parameters in large livestock pedigrees. A postdoctoral period in Melbourne (Australia) was followed by a return to Edinburgh, where he developed methods to map genetic loci underlying complex traits. In 1995 he moved to a faculty position at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology of the University of Edinburgh, developing gene mapping methods and software tools, with practical applications in livestock and human populations. Visscher joined the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Brisbane (Australia) in 2005 and in 2011 moved to the University of Queensland where he is Professor and Chair of Quantitative Genetics and Director of the Centre for Neurogenetics and Statistical Genomics. Visscher is a Senior Principal Research Fellow of the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council and was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2010. Visscher's research interests are focused on a better understanding of genetic variation for complex traits, including quantitative traits and disease, and on systems genomics.
