Nevan Krogan is a leading molecular and systems biologist whose current research is focused on the generation and analysis of large-scale genetic and protein-protein interaction datasets in a variety of organisms, ranging from bacteria to mammalian cells, with the ultimate goal of developing new therapeutics. To this end, he has developed strategies to generate quantitative genetic interaction maps and affinity tag/purification/mass spectrometry technologies used to create protein-protein interaction maps.
Nevan is a Professor and the Director of the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), as well as a Senior Investigator at the J. David Gladstone Institutes. He has authored over 300 papers in the field of molecular biology and has given over 350 lectures and seminars around the world. Nevan obtained his undergraduate degree in chemistry in 1997, his M.Sc. in biology in 1999 from the University of Regina and received his Ph.D. in medical genetics at the University of Toronto in 2006.
