Katherine Stott attended Churchill College as an undergraduate in Natural Sciences, matriculating in 1990. She did her PhD in the Department of Chemistry in the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, during which she developed a new clean and efficient methodology for observing the nuclear Overhauser effect in small-to-medium sized molecules. She then moved across the road to the Department of Biochemistry where she was employed as a postdoc by the Cambridge Centre for Molecular Recognition in the high-field NMR facility, and as a teaching By-Fellow at Newnham college, before joining the Chromatin research group headed by Professor Jean. O. Thomas. She now manages the Biophysics Facility in the Department of Biochemistry, where she collaborates with groups university-wide wishing to apply NMR and other biophysical techniques to problems in structural biology that are pertinent to the understanding of cancer and other diseases.
