Angus Lamond is a cell biologist who has used a wide range of innovative techniques to identify and analyse the thousands of proteins that are produced inside cells, particularly within the cell nucleus. These techniques have uncovered regulatory pathways that affect gene expression in both healthy cells and cancer cells.
His methods include the fluorescent imaging of live cells under the microscope. Working with cells from both humans and model organisms, he has used quantitative methods to assess how populations of proteins are distributed within the cell, how they move between compartments and how they interact during the course of the cell cycle.
Angus has also overseen the development of software tools for data analysis, freely available to other researchers, as well as producing The Cell Biologist’s Guide to Proteomics and the Encyclopedia of Proteome Dynamics. He won the Novartis Medal and Prize of the Biochemical Society in 2011, the Medal of Honour of Charles University in Prague in 2006, and the Colworth Medal in 1992.
