Jernej Ule is a researcher at The Francis Crick Institute and UCL Institute of Neurology, London, UK. He studies how genes are expressed and regulated, how this changes during development or diseases of the brain, and how genes and their regulation evolve.
Jernej obtained his BSc in Molecular Biology from University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 1999, and PhD in Molecular Neuroscience from Rockefeller University, New York, in 2004, where he also pursued a two-year postdoctoral project. We was a Group Leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge (2006-2013) where he built an RNA biology laboratory with an emphasis on the structure and function of protein-RNA complexes. In April 2013, he moved with his group to the UCL Institute of Neurology as a Professor of Molecular Neuroscience.
