Dr Catherine Hogan
Dr Hogan completed her undergraduate training at University College Cork, Ireland, and then went on to do a research masters in Molecular Biology at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and Trinity College Dublin.
During her PhD she changed focus to study cell biology and imaging at the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King's College London. Her thesis project described actin cytoskeletal dynamics in macrophage migration and chemotaxis.
She joined the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (LMCB), University College London in 2003 as a MRC career development postdoctoral fellow. Initially, her studies focused on the regulation of E-cadherin dynamics in epithelial cells, and later switched to understanding the interaction between transformed and normal epithelial cells. When the lab relocated to Hokkaido University in Japan in 2011, she continued at the LMCB as an independent investigator scientist, before joining us as a Research Fellow in September 2013.
