Studying the signalling mechanisms cells use to respond to DNA damage and why defects in these pathways cause human diseases such as cancer.
Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo
Aiming to elucidate the pathophysiological basis of human neurological disorders from genetic molecular networks to complex neural systems.
Understanding and targeting telomere maintenance in cancer
Understanding B cell development and diseases associated with abnormal antibody production.
Studying how lymphocytes decide to mount immune responses against, for example, tumours (cancer immunotherapy).
Multiple sclerosis: understanding genetic and environmental susceptibility
Design and implementation of synthetic circuits for research and therapeutic applications
Using state-of-the-art laboratory and computational approaches to understand how mammalian genes are switched on and off during development and differentiation and how this goes awry in human genetic diseases.
Studying the contribution of the immune system to lung injury, repair and fibrosis.
The molecular and cellular biology of thymus development and function
Applying a wide range of genomics methods and technologies to understand how gene expression is regulated.
Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human cardiovascular and haematological traits
Developing machine-learning and mathematical models to understand heterogeneity of response to personalised cancer immunotherapy.
Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment.
