In his PhD, Stephen characterized a novel family of transcription factors that are important in animal development. He subsequently worked in Cambridge, UK, for five years, identifying signalling and physical links through integrins that allow cell adhesion and muscle attachment. He returned to Adelaide to work with Prof Saint on the mechanics of cell division. This led to him starting his own work on chromosomal instability and cancer in 2009. After running this lab at Adelaide University for 9 years, he moved to Flinders in 2018.
