Ian Sayers graduated with a BSc in Biochemistry from Sheffield University, UK in 1993. He stayed at Sheffield and undertook research into the molecular basis of Immunoglobulin E (IgE) receptor interactions with a focus on therapeutic intervention in allergy graduating with a PhD in 1997. Dr Sayers has maintained his research interest in the molecular basis of asthma and allergy spending time with the Asthma Genetics Group in Southampton, UK (1998-2001) and in pre-clinical drug development in New Zealand at Genesis Research and Development Corporation and the Malaghan Institute (2001-2003). In 2004, Dr Sayers joined the University of Nottingham as a Lecturer and has developed a research group focussed to understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying asthma and COPD. He has subsequently been promoted to Associate Professor (2010), Reader (2013) and Professor (2017).
