Dr Jess Buxton


I graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in Genetics, and obtained my PhD in Human Genetics from Imperial College London, for which I carried out research into the molecular basis of myotonic dystrophy. After a postdoctoral position at the UCL Institute of Child Health London, working on another genetic condition, Angelman syndrome, I took a career break for family reasons. I returned to full-time research at Imperial College in 2009, supported by a Wellcome Trust Career Re-entry Fellowship. This funded my work on the identification of novel genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors associated with telomere length, a proposed biomarker of biological ageing. I carried out further postdoctoral work at University College London from 2014, before joining Kingston University as a senior lecturer in 2017. 

Academic responsibilities

Senior lecturer in Medical Genetics


  • Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
  • Diploma in Science Communication, Birkbeck College, University of London
  • PhD in Human Genetics, St Mary's and Charing Cross Medical Schools, Imperial College London
  • BSc(Hons) in Genetics, Leeds University

Teaching and learning


My scientific interests lie in understanding the contribution of genetic variation and genomic integrity to human disease. During my early career, I investigated the molecular pathology underlying the monogenic conditions myotonic dystrophy and Angelman syndrome. More recently, I have worked on the identification of genetic and epigenetic factors associated with complex traits, particularly obesity and telomere length - an indicator of cellular ageing and an independent risk factor for age-related metabolic dysfunction.
