Short Biography

Nicholas Taylor from Belgium joined the Stahlberg group at C-CINA in July 2016. Previously he has been a postdoc at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) and CIB-CSIC (Madrid, Spain). He obtained his PhD in Molecular Biology at EMBL Heidelberg (Germany). Before that, he performed his master thesis research at UCL (London, UK). He has a master degree in Biochemistry from Ghent University (Belgium) and a “candidate” degree in Biomedical Sciences from Free University Brussels (VUB) (Belgium).
