Neil Brockdorff is a Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in the Department of Biochemistry. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biologists, The Academy of Medical Sciences and Royal Society. He is also a member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO). 

Neil Brockdorff studies the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression during development. A central focus of his work is X chromosome inactivation in mammals, a developmentally regulated process in which genes on one of the two X chromosomes present in female cells are stably silenced.
