DCSB Welcomes Dr. Nathan Lord to our academic family!

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Dr. Nathan Lord to our Department as an Assistant Professor in the tenure stream effective September 2020.

Dr. Lord joins us from the lab of Dr. Alex Schier in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University, where he was an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow. He obtained his PhD in the lab of Dr. Johan Paulsson, Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, and his B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Michigan State University.

Dr. Lord’s research focuses on how cells and embryos behave reliably in the face of stochastic fluctuations and uncertain environmental conditions. His long-term research goal is to understand how embryos prevent and correct errors during development.

We are delighted to welcome Nate to our academic family as well as the Training Faculty at the Carnegie Mellon University/University of Pittsburgh Joint PhD Program in Computational Biology, CPCB.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Nathan Lord and his wife, Ms. Glynis A. Ritchie, to the Pittsburgh community!
