Eve Roberts trained with Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock at the Royal Free Hospital in London, United Kingdom, and became a pediatric hepatologist and researcher at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. She was the clinician on the team which identified the gene abnormal in Wilson disease and she later collaborated to develop metalloproteomics as a research strategy for Wilson disease. She has written extensively on Wilson disease and pediatric hepatology. Previously full professor and senior scientist, she is currently an adjunct professor of Paediatrics, Medicine and Pharmacology & Toxicology at the University of Toronto, and an adjunct scientist in the Genetics and Genomic Medicine program of the Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute. Additionally, she is an Associate Fellow in the History of Science and Technology Programme at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
