Sarah Teichmann

Group Leader - Teichmann research group

PhD 2000, University of Cambridge and MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Trinity College Junior Research Fellow, 1999-2005. Beit Memorial Fellow for Biomedical Research, University College London, 2000-2001. MRC Career Track Programme Leader, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, 2001-5 and MRC Programme Leader, 2006-12. Fellow and Director of Studies, Trinity College, since 2005. Principle Research Associate at the Dept Physics/Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2013-2016. Group Leader at EMBL-EBI and Sanger Institute since 2013.

Dr Sarah Teichmann is a research group leader at EMBL-EBI and senior group leader at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. She is also a Principle Research Associate in the Dept Physics/Cavendish Laboratory, and a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. She is a leader in systems biology, which aims to explain how individual molecules within a cell co-operate to produce the cell’s overall behaviour. Her research also offers new insights into how proteins behave. This work could help scientists to predict how proteins interact with each other and design drugs that can interfere with disease processes. After reading the Natural Science Tripos at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, Sarah received her PhD in computational biology from the UK’s Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC-LMB) in Cyrus Chothia's group. Sarah then moved to University College London as a Beit Memorial Fellow in Janet Thornton's group, where her work shed light on how proteins are formed from combinations of basic modules, and how they form networks of interactions in metabolic pathways. She returned to the LMB to set up her own group in 2001, where she focused on transcription factors, proteins that help to control the activity of genes. This included building a database ( that allows researchers to search for genes predicted to encode transcription factors. Seminal work has shown how proteins club together to form larger “machines”, or complexes, by assembling via ordered pathways, and part of this is a further database, Sarah is a co-founder of the state-of-the-art Single Cell Genomics Centre, a joint EMBL-EBI/Sanger initiative to clarify how gene activity is controlled throughout single cells of different types. Her work has been recognized by a number of awards, including the Biochemical Society's Colworth Medal, the Lister Prize, the Royal Society Crick Lecture and membership of the European Molecular Biology Organisation.
