Nicholas Luscombe


Following a degree in Natural Sciences at Jesus College, University of Cambridge (1993-1996), Nick studied for a Ph.D. with Janet Thornton at UCL (1996-2000) on the basis for specificity of DNA-binding proteins. He then moved to Yale University, USA, as an Anna Fuller Postdoctoral Fellow with Mark Gerstein (2000-2005), where he shifted research focus to genomics with a particular emphasis on yeast transcriptional regulation. He was a Group Leader at the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (2005-2012) in Cambridge and built a computational biology laboratory with an emphasis on genomics and gene regulation. During this time, he joined the Okinawa Institute of Science & Technology as an Adjunct Faculty to establish a small group focused on developmental regulation (2011-present). He recently returned to UCL as a Chair in Computational Biology in the UCL Genetics Institute and holds a joint appointment as a Senior Group Leader at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute. His laboratory will be joining the Francis Crick Institute in 2015.
