Dr Kelly Nguyen

Cambridge Biomedical Campus, UK

Kelly Nguyen’s group studies telomerase regulation and other processes involved in telomere maintenance beyond telomerase. She employs an integrated structural biology approach with a focus on biochemistry, cryo-electron microscopy and in vivo studies in mammalian cells.

 Kelly Nguyen earned her PhB (Honours) degree in chemistry from the Australian National University, followed by a PhD in structural biology from the MRC-LMB (Cambridge, UK) with Dr Kiyoshi Nagai. She was awarded a Miller Research Fellowship in 2016 to work on human telomerase in the laboratories of Profs. Eva Nogales and Kathleen Collins at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2019, she established her own group at the MRC-LMB where she continues investigating aspects of telomere maintenance.
