Alex Gould

Alex Gould is a senior group leader and Wellcome Investigator at The Francis Crick Institute in London. He is interested in how diet and other factors in the environment affect growth, physiology and metabolism. A key area of current interest focuses on identifying the mechanisms that protect the developing CNS from nutrient restriction and hypoxia. Alex's laboratory uses Drosophila and mice models, together with a range of genetic, molecular, microscopy and metabolomics techniques including state-of-the-art mass spectrometry imaging.
