Ann Trezise completed her PhD at Griffith University in Brisbane in 1989, on the molecular evolution of primate alcohol dehydrogenase genes.  She held postdoctoral fellowships, awarded by the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada (1989-1992), and the Beit Memorial Trust for Medical Research at the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Oxford, UK (1992-1996), where she was involved in characterising the expression and regulation of the gene defective in Cystic Fibrosis (CFTR).  She was appointed as a Senior Lecturer at The University of Queensland in 2000.  In 2006, she was appointed as Associate Professor and Director of the Australian Equine Genetics Research Centre.  Her research publications have been cited over 1,700 times and she has been awarded over $37M in research funding.  Her current research interests include the regulation of gene expression and applied research in horse genetics supporting the Australian Horse Racing and Breeding Industry.
