Nate Goehring, PhD

Group Leader                                                                             

Nate earned his Ph.D. working on the mechanisms of cell division in bacteria with Jon Beckwith at Harvard Medical School (1999-2006).  In 2006, he moved to the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany to work with Tony Hyman (2006-2012).  There, in collaboration with the laboratory of Stephan Grill, he extended his interest in cell biology and protein networks, developing quantitative tools for analyzing and modeling pattern formation in the early C. elegans embryo.  In 2013, Nate accepted a position as Junior Group Leader at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute, which in 2015 became part of the Francis Crick Institute.  His lab combines quantitative systems-level approaches with basic cell biology and genetics to understand the formation of patterns during early development.  He is also a Senior Research Associate in the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Cell Biology at UCL.
