Dr Nathan Archer is examining post-transcriptional gene regulation by mRNA modifications.

Nathan completed his PhD "Internal and Cap-Adjacent Modifications of Messenger RNA in Eukaryotic Systems" in 2014. After postdoctoral research at the University of Warwick examining biological and technical sources of single cell genetic heterogeneity, he returned to the Univeristy of Nottingham as a Nottingham research fellow in 2018.

He recently completed his Nottingham Research Fellowship and was subsequently appointed as Assistant Professor in Epitranscriptomics. He has published key works in the RNA field, including characterising and correcting for sources of noise in gene expression data (Cell Systems. 2016, doi: 10.1016/j.cels.2016.10.012), and the characterisation of roles for epitranscriptomic marks in gene regulation (Nature. 2016, doi: 10.1038/nature20577; Nature Communications. 2022, doi: 10.1038/s41467-022-28753-3; Nature Communications. 2022, doi: 10.1038/s41467-022-28549-5).
