Dr William Grey
John Goldman Fellow



Bill completed his PhD at King's College London with Dr. Veronica Yu and Prof. David Grimwade, studying the role of protein phosphorylation and degradation across stem cell systems, including embryonic, neural and haematopoeitic systems. He continued studying protein biology as a postdoctoral fellow at The Francis Crick Institute with Prof. Dominique Bonnet. Focussing on haematopoietic stem cells and acute myeloid leukaemia.

Bill was awarded a John Goldman Fellowship by Leukaemia U.K. in 2022 and a Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group project grant to start his independent research programme at the University of York, working on protein homeostasis (so called "Proteostasis") in normal and malignant stem cells of the haematopoietic system.

During his time in London, Bill founded the London Stem Cell Network and maintains strong links with scientists across stem cell systems. Bill has been a Royal Society Westminster Fellow and worked with the Brilliant Club since 2012 to bring scientists closer to politicians, general public and most importantly primary and secondary education.
