Professor Jeremy Simpson

Principal, UCD College of Science

Prof Jeremy SimpsonProfessor Jeremy Simpson obtained his BSc (Hons) and PhD degrees from the University of Warwick. After postdoctoral work at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego (USA) and the ICRF (now Cancer Research UK) in London, he was awarded a long term EMBO fellowship allowing him to move to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg. For over nine years he worked at EMBL developing and applying novel high-throughput imaging approaches to study protein localisation and membrane traffic in mammalian cells.

In 2008 he was appointed as Full Professor of Cell Biology at UCD. His lab applies high-throughput imaging technologies in 3D cell models to study subcellular transport pathways and human diseases associated with their function, as well as the internalisation routes taken by synthetic nanoparticles as potential drug delivery vehicles. It also develops novel approaches for image analysis. He has authored over 115 peer-reviewed articles, including articles in Nature Cell Biology, Nature Methods, Nature Communications and a number of book chapters.

Since joining UCD he has held several leadership positions, including Head of Subject for Cell and Molecular Biology, Head of the UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science, and Vice-Principal (International) for the UCD College of Science.
