Nigel Mongan

Adjunct Professor

I was awarded a Doctorate in Cell Signaling from the University of Cambridge in 1999. In 2001 I completed my postdoc in the lab of Ieuan Hughes at Addenbrooke's, Cambridge, where I worked on nuclear receptors and coregulators in human hereditary disorders. I then joined Dr. Gudas' lab, where I investigate the mechanisms of epigenetic silencing of the retinoid receptor beta in carcinogenesis. This research may lead to more effective chemotherapeutic cancer treatments.  I am now a faculty member at the University of Nottingham in England and am starting my own lab, while continuing some collaborations with the Gudas lab as an adjunct Weill Cornell Pharmacology faculty member.
