Nathan Mortimer received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Molecular Biology from Emory University and completed his postdoctoral fellowship there as well. He has been an assistant professor at the University of Warwick in the UK and Illinois State University.
Mortimer is a project leader for Genomics Education Partnership, a nationwide collaboration that develops curriculum and research questions to enable course-based undergraduate research experiences at a variety of institutions. The project he leads is based on research in his lab and has been implemented at more than 20 colleges and universities.
Mortimer is generally interested in understanding how the activities of individual proteins can influence biology at the cellular and organismal scales. His research is primarily focused on understanding cell signaling mechanisms, particularly in the context of immunity and disease.
