Group Leader

Dr Naomi Moris

I studied Biological Science at Imperial College London as an undergraduate, and found myself fascinated by developmental biology and how the embryo is able to form a complete organism from a single cell. I went to Cambridge to do a PhD with Cristina Pina and Alfonso Martinez-Arias, looking at mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation. I was particularly interested in gene expression dynamics of single cells and epigenetic regulation of transitions between states. I then moved into 3D models of embryogenesis, using mouse gastruloids as an in vitro system to study multiaxial pattern formation. In 2017 I became a Junior Research Fellow at Newnham College, before starting my own group at the Francis Crick Institute in 2021. When I'm not in the lab, I enjoy reading, gardening and looking after my 3 chickens!
