Kristen Naegle

Assistant Professor


Computational Biology, Cell Signaling, Cancer


Kristen Naegle’s research interests include computational molecular systems biology, post-translational modifications, signal transduction and proteomics. She combines computational mining and modeling techniques with experimental molecular biology approaches to understand the function of post-translational modifications in regulatory networks of the cell. The specific focus of her work is on those regulatory events that are involved in the complex development and propagation of human disease with the possibility of discovering new therapeutic interventions in diseases like cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative disorders.


Kristen Naegle joined Washington University in St. Louis in 2012. She was previously a postdoctoral associate at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and Department of Biological Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
