- Senior Investigator, Laboratory of Receptor Biology and Gene Expression
Tom Misteli is an internationally renowned pioneer in the field of genome cell biology. He trained at the University of London, UK, and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY, where he initiated the use of imaging approaches to study genomes in living cells. His laboratory aims to uncover fundamental principles of higher order genome organization and to apply this knowledge to the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for cancer and aging. He has received numerous awards for his work, acts as an advisor for several national and international agencies and serves on numerous editorial boards. He has received numerous awards including the Gian Tondury Award, the Gold Medal of The Charles University, the 2012 Flemming Award, The Wilhem Bernhard Medal and the Herman Beerman Award.
