Jeremy Simpson's Biography

Jeremy Simpson, Vice Principal, University College Dublin

Dr. Jeremy Simpson carried out his PhD work at the University of Warwick (UK), working on trafficking of protein toxins in mammalian cells. After post-doctoral work at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego (USA) and the ICRF in London (UK), he was awarded a long term EMBO fellowship allowing him to move to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg (Germany). For over 9 years he worked at EMBL developing and applying novel high-throughput imaging approaches to study protein localisation and membrane traffic. In 2008, he was appointed as Professor of Cell Biology at University College Dublin, Ireland. His lab currently applies high-throughput imaging technologies to study intracellular trafficking pathways, the internalisation routes taken by synthetic nanoparticles on exposure to cells, and how the cytoskeleton responds to cellular exposure to nanomaterials and nanosurfaces. His lab also develops novel software tools for image analysis. He has authored over 80 peer-reviewed articles, including articles in Nature Cell Biology and Nature Methods, and currently runs the UCD Cell Screening Laboratory ( He coordinates the MSc in Imaging and Microscopy, and is currently the Head of School of Biology & Environmental Science and the Vice Principal (International) in the UCD College of Science.

In this presentation, genome-wide RNA interference and automated high content screening microscopy will be discussed which helps in systematically dissecting secretory, endocytic and retrograde pathways and quantifying the relevance of all genes to them. Particularly, regulatory networks spanning each of these pathways will be focussed. Further, the advantages of information obtained from these screens will be covered.
