Lucy Raymond is Professor of Medical Genetics and Neurodevelopment, in the Department of Medical Genetics at the University of Cambridge. She is also the assistant director of the NIHR Rare Diseases Bioresource and Director of the East of England Genomics Medicine Centre.
Her research aims to identify and understand the genetic causes of intellectual disability. Her research group conducts detailed analysis of the whole DNA genome in affected families, and this has allowed them to identify novel genes that contribute to this disease. A vital new part of this is their participation in a collaborative UK initiative to analyse the genomes of 10,000 patients in unprecedented detail.
Lucy is also a Consultant Clinical Geneticist for Cambridge University Hospitals. She runs a monthly clinic at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn where she sees referrals from GPs within the King Lynn area and hospital referrals from General Medicine, Paediatrics, and general Surgery and Oncology.
