Nozomu Yachie is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Synthetic Biology at the School of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Combining technologies in cell engineering, genome editing, and computational biology, Yachie’s team is developing new technologies to measure the dynamics of molecules and cells in complex biological systems, including mammalian development and cell differentiation. Previously, Yachie was an Associate Professor at the University of Tokyo’s Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST) and also served as the Director of the Laboratories for Systems Biology and Medicine (LSBM).
Yachie received his Ph.D. in Systems Biology from Keio University in 2009. He then completed postdoctoral training with Dr. Frederick Roth at Harvard Medical School and the University of Toronto where he received a Banting Fellowship. Yachie is also a recipient of JSPS fellowships DC1, PD and "Research Abroad" awarded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, the PRESTO Researchership awarded by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (2014-2018), and the Young Scientists Award by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (2020).
