After obtaining her PhD at the University of California, San Franciso, Professor Inke Näthke completed postdoctoral work at Stanford and Harvard University. She joined the University of Dundee in 1998, where she is Professor of Epithelial Biology. Her research aims to understand the earliest changes accompanying tumour formation and inflammation in the intestinal tract, focussing on functions of the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli protein. Her experimental approaches operate at scales from molecules to tissue. They include biological, physical, and mathematical methods. Her leadership in improving research culture reflects her deep commitment to improving diversity and inclusion and the recognition that only diverse, inclusive research communities deliver the best for society.
