James Briscoe

Genetics and Development, MRC National Institute for Medical Research, London UK

Briscoe’s current research interests include how small networks of transcription factors act dynamically to interpret graded signalling by hedgehog ligands to specify cell fate the vertebrate neural tube. To address these questions, Briscoe’s lab,  in the Division of Developmental Biology at MRC, uses a range of techniques and model systems including mouse, chick and zebrafish.

In 2001 he was elected an EMBO Young Investigator, he was awarded the EMBO Gold Medal in 2008 and elected to EMBO in 2009.
