Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute

 

Leadership

Professor Bertie Göttgens is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, Member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO), Wellcome Investigator and former President of the International Society for Experimental Haematology. He has served on many national and international grant review panels, and several of his former trainees now hold senior positions in both academia and industry.

Professor Bertie Göttgens

Director

Bertie’s post-doctoral research delivered the first molecular understanding of key regulatory processes that define blood stem cell identity. After starting his own group, he continued work to decipher the blood stem cell regulatory code and then exploited this knowledge to generate computer models that faithfully capture the behaviour of normal blood stem cells, and model dysregulation of stem cell function in leukaemia.

Throughout the past 5 years, his group has performed internationally leading research in using new single cell profiling technologies. By expanding their scope beyond blood development, the group is now charting cellular diversification in mammalian embryos, all the way from pluripotent stem cells to the progenitors of all major organs.

 

Deputy Director

Professor Göttgens is supported by a Deputy Director to promote specific areas of Institute activity.

Professor Sanjay Sinha

Deputy Director

 

Strategy Advisory Committee

The SAC supports the Director and Deputy Director with expert evaluation & advice. It formulates, implements and ensures effective delivery of the Institute key strategic objectives. The committee is made up of all professorial members of the Institute as well as full PI, affiliated PI and professional support reps.
