Nevan Krogan is a professor in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology at the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF). He obtained his PhD from the University of Toronto in 2006 and became a Sandler Fellow at UCSF prior to becoming an assistant professor.
His research, which is in the area of functional genomics/proteomics and systems biology, 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. To this end, he has developed strategies that were used to generate quantative genetic interaction maps and has been involved in affinity tag/purification/mass spectrometry approaches to create protein-protein interaction maps.
He uses these unbiased, global datasets to extract the details of how individual pathways, complexes and proteins function, most notably in nuclear processes such as transcription, DNA repair/replication and chromatin regulation.
