The CrickConnect team are delighted to be able to invite community members to join us for the institute's regular Crick Lecture.
Crick Lectures provide a broad insight into biomedical research from leading scientists. Not to be missed, the one-hour lectures are the event of the week for the Crick community to come together.
Crick Lectures take place weekly (usually on Thursday at 16:00), and are given by leading scientists. The lectures aim to be accessible to scientists across different disciplines, while also offering something for the specialist.
Due to the pioneering and sensitive nature of some of the research discussed in these lectures, only Crick Lectures from selected speakers will be shared, and we ask all attendees to respect the private nature of these talks by refraining from making any type of recording, sharing access details or in any other way compromising the research that is discussed.
Senior Group Leader Nate Goehring will be giving this week's Crick Lecture, title to be confirmed.
There will also be a netwroking opportunity after the Lecture from 5pm. If you are able to join us in person at the Crick please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange access
Nathan obtained his BA in biology at Amherst College, USA, and was a Fulbright Scholar in the laboratory of Peter Overath at the Max Planck Institute for Biology (Germany), where he worked on cell surface proteins of Leishmania parasites. As a PhD student, he trained with Jon Beckwith at Harvard Medical School as a Howard Hughes Fellow, working on the mechanisms of bacterial cell division.
He then pursued postdoctoral training at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (Germany) where he began his work on cell polarity and patterning in the C. elegans embryo with Tony Hyman and Stephan Grill supported by fellowships from the Max Planck Society, the Alexander von Humboldt Society and the EU/Marie Curie Training Programme.
In 2013, Nathan started his research group at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute at Lincoln's Inn Fields, which in 2015 became part of the Francis Crick Institute.
Current research in his lab combines quantitative systems-level approaches, including mathematical modelling and biophysics, with basic cell biology and genetics to understand the formation of patterns during early development. Work currently focuses on the cell polarity networks that serve as essential spatial organising systems in cells.
