Simon Bullock, Group Leader
I graduated from the University of Durham in 1995 with a 1st Class Hons degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. I then did a Ph.D. with Rosa Beddington at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill, London working on embryology of the mouse. In particular, I studied the role of proteoglycans in the development of the kidney. Whilst at NIMR, I developed a strong interest in how cell biological mechanisms contribute to developmental processes. In 1999 I moved to the Imperial Cancer Research Fund/Cancer Research UK London Research Institute to be a post-doc with David Ish-Horowicz working on the mechanisms and functions of mRNA transport in Drosophila embryos. I started my own group here at the LMB in September 2004. I was awarded a Lister Research Prize in 2008 and elected a member of EMBO in 2015.
