Frank Grosveld is a molecular biologist whose research interests are in the regulation of transcription during development with a particular emphasis on mammalian erythroid differentiation.

His research group has carried out pioneering work in many aspects of gene regulation from concluding that DNA methylation inhibits gene expression via an indirect mechanism, to the first description of an LCR, visualizing the primary transcription process in the nucleus and most recently the decription of 3D interactions in the nucleus. His group has filed a considerable number of patents and has closely collaborated with industrial partners.
