Dr. Kurt Anderson

The Francis Crick Institute

Kurt Anderson is a cell biologist and head of light and imaging analysis at The Francis Crick Institute in London, UK. He uses advanced imaging methods to study cell migration in cancer. Kurt obtained his PhD in 1997 at the University of Salzburg, before moving on to the Marie Curie Cancer Research Institute (UK) to study the dynamics of cell adhesion. In 2001 he set up the light microscopy facility at the new Max Planck Institute for Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG). After moving to Glasgow in 2005 and investigating tumor migration, Kurt was ultimately made a Professor of Cell Migration at the University of Glasgow in 2011. In March 2016, Kurt was appointed as head of the Crick Advanced Light Microscopy Facility (CALM).
