Ned Wingreen is the Howard A. Prior Professor of the Life Sciences at Princeton University. He is a member of the Department of Molecular Biology and of the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and also associated faculty in the Department of Physics. Ned received his Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics from Cornell University in 1989. He did his postdoc in mesoscopic physics at MIT before moving, in 1991, to the NEC Research Institute in Princeton. At NEC, he continued to work in mesoscopic physics, but also started research in biophysics which grew into a general interest in problems at the interface of physics and biology. Ned joined Princeton University in 2004. Ned's current research focuses on modeling intracellular networks in bacteria and other microorganisms, as well as studies of microbial communities and intracellular phase separation. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
