Gillian Condé studied Zoology at the University of Liverpool and became increasingly interested in the function of the endocrine system. She then moved to the University of Cambridge to undertake a PhD in the Neuroendocrinology of reproduction.
Gill moved to work as a Wellcome Trust Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Bristol, working on cytokine expression in the brain. Following this, she relocated to Germany, as a Visiting Fellow, to work with Dr Osborne Almeida at the Max-Planck Institute for Psychiatry, in Munich, Germany, where she looked at hippocampal apoptosis, and remodelling. Following relocation back to the UK, she started a career in Higher Education, as a Physiology Lecturer, with a particular interest in the endocrine system and the nervous system.
Following a period of time as an Enabling Tutor, working with students who are differently abled or who have additional educational requirements, across a large Faculty, she was promoted to Head of Biomedical Science. Her expertise in management, physiology, teaching and learning, led her into Physician Associate education, and she moved to the University of Birmingham in 2020 to take up the role of Programme Lead. She holds a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and is a Fellow of the Institute for Biomedical Science.
