Dr Martin Hemberg, PhD | CDF Group Leader

Hemberg, Martin

Martin Hemberg is a Career Development Fellow Group Leader and his research interests are centered around quantitative models of gene expression and gene regulation. He is particularly interested in stochastic models and analysis of single-cell data. Another line of research involves analyzing the role of non-coding transcripts and sequences.

In addition to working at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Martin is also an associate faculty member at the Wellcome Trust/CRUK Gurdon Institute.
