Background Information

Greg was born and raised only a few miles from the University of Dundee, where he started his scientific career as an undergraduate, receiving a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry in 2001. He performed PhD research in London at the Institute of Cancer Research, working with Richard Lamb to investigate novel mechanisms of mTOR pathway regulation. In 2007, Greg moved to Toronto, Canada to work with Tony Pawson at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he investigated the role of modular domain-based interactions in controlling Embryonic Stem Cell identity.

In January 2014, Greg moved back to the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, where he set up his research group in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit. In 2015 he was awarded a prestigious MRC New Investigator Research Grant. The main interest of the Findlay lab is identifying and characterizing novel kinase signaling modules that control Embryonic Stem Cell identity.
