Nicolas Le Novère
Nicolas Le Novère is Group Leader at the Babraham Institute and the European Bioinformatics Institute. He studied Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at École Normale Supérieure, Evolution at University Paris XI, Biophysics and Pharmacology at University Paris VI. After his PhD thesis on the structure and function of neuronal nicotinic receptors with Jean-Pierre Changeux at the Pasteur Institute, he pursued post doctoral training in modelling bacterial chemotaxis with Dennis Bray at the University of Cambridge (UK). His two main scientific interests are now Computational Systems Biology and the study of neuronal function. Beside modelling, he is interested in developing tools, resources, standards and ontologies for Systems Biology.
