Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas. Read more

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells. Read more

Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem. Read more

Why cell position matters in cancer: role of epigenetic factors

Although cancers are highly mutated, it is factors above and beyond those mutations that allow a tumor to form. These factors include epigenetic gene programs embedded within the cell of origin (Baggiolini, et al, Science 2021). Read more

Novel non-coding RNAs in regulating cancer epigenome

This opportunity will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found and so early applications are encouraged. Cancer-associated changes in gene expression and genome stability are often attributed to variations in DNA methylation. Read more

MSc by Research: The epigenetic basis of blood diseases

The epigenetic mark of DNA methylation is established by DNMT (DNA methyltransferase) enzymes and has been shown to correlate with transcriptional states and influence cell identity and tumorigenesis in mammalian cells. Read more

A computational multi-omics approach to kidney function and disease.

This project will utilise multiple layers of ‘omics’ data to identify the molecular ‘signatures’ of kidney function. The project will make full use of our unique collection of approximately 500 human kidney tissue samples. Read more
