Paul Dear PhD
CEO, Mote Research
Dr Paul H. Dear got his D Phil from Oxford in 1989, for developing techniques in genome mapping and analysis. After a post-doc in Oxford, he joined the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge in 1992, first as a post-doc under Sir Greg Winter, and then as group leader. He focussed initially on genome mapping, and went on to develop the basis for a single-molecule, microfluidic-based DNA sequencing technology currently being developed with Base4 Innovation. In 2015, he left the LMB to start his own genome editing company, Mote Research Limited. His current interests include microfluidics, therapeutic and prophylactic genome editing, and the application of single-molecule methods in DNA sequencing and detection.
