Jeff completed his BSc at LaTrobe University, Vic. Australia, and MSc at The University of Melbourne, Vic.
Australia. For his PhD (1987; University College London, UK), he studied mammalian parthenogenesis. Jeff moved to the Centre for Early Human Development, Monash University, Melbourne, where he developed a mouse model for the treatment of severe human male infertility (1987-1988). He then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology (RIMB), Nutley, New Jersey, USA, on the role of the Wnt1 gene in the developing nervous system (1988-1990). He was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship (Life Sciences Research Foundation, Baltimore, Maryland, USA; alumnus 1990) and worked on mammalian androgenesis (1990-1991) at RIMB. Jeff became Assistant Professor at the Beckman Research Institute, City of Hope National Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA (1991) where he continued his work on epigenetics, mammalian parthenogenesis, androgenesis and genomic imprinting. Here, he became Associate Professor (1996) and Professor (2002). In mid-2005 he moved to the Department of Zoology, UoM (2005-2008). He then moved to the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI), The Royal Children's Hospital, Parkville (2008-present). He is a Honorary Principal Research Fellow (Department Zoology) and Principal Research Fellow (MCRI). He carries out research in mammalian genomic imprinting, and germ and stem cell epigenetics. Jeff was convener and instructor of the prestigious Molecular Embryology of the Mouse Course, Cold Spring Harbor, New York (1988-1993). He is expert in molecular embryology techniques in the mouse, and is an international authority on mouse developmental genetics, genetic modification technology and embryonic stem cell manipulation.
