BIO

Nicolas Le Novère is senior group leader at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge (UK). He studied  molecular biology and biochemistry at École Normale Supérieure, evolution at University Paris XI, biophysics and pharmacology at University Paris VI where he received a PhD in 1998. His early career at the Pasteur Institute focused on brain nicotinic receptors and their role in tobacco addiction, using both experimental and computational approaches. He moved to systems biology while modelling bacterial chemotaxis at the University of Cambridge (UK). First at EMBL-EBI and then at the Babraham Institute, his research centred on inter and intra-cellular signals, with a particular emphasis on synaptic plasticity. He coordinated the development of key software tools to support computational systems biology research, such as BioModels, and was a major figure behind the development of a coordinated set of standards, including the MIRIAM guidelines, SBO and SBGN. Le Novère is also director of res earch at the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS).Nicolas Le Novère is senior group leader at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge (UK).
