Nick Luscombe, EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute, UK
Nick Luscombe completed his PhD with Professor Janet Thornton at University College London (1996-2000), studying the basis for specificity of DNA-binding proteins. He then moved to Yale University as a post-doctoral fellow with Professor Mark Gerstein (2000-2004). During this time, he shifted his research focus to genomics, with a particular emphasis on transcriptional regulation in yeast. He has been a Group Leader at EMBL-EBI since 2005, examining the control of interesting biological systems.
