Epigenetic regulation of bivalent genes in development and cancer

Our groups are interested in identifying epigenetic mechanisms driving cancer progression. Although it is well known that cancer cells harbor many DNA mutations, they also have significant alterations of their epigenome. Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied. Read more

MSc By Research: Unravelling the mechanisms controlling anterior eye development

The MSc by Research programme at the University of Aberdeen is for students interested in a research-intensive master's degree. It is designed specifically to enhance your skills for a PhD or research career. Read more

MSc By Research: From GWAS to causative genes

The MSc by Research programme at the University of Aberdeen is for students interested in a research-intensive master's degree. It is designed specifically to enhance your skills for a PhD or research career. Read more

Exploring the role of interferon stimulated genes (ISGs) in stem cells of serous ovarian cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of mortality in women due to gynaecological cancers. High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70-80% of patients with EOC. Read more

Common genetic origins of visual and neurocognitive disorders

There is emerging evidence that apparently distinct neurodegenerative diseases have common genetic origins. For example, genes such as ARMS2 and HTRA1, which are fundamental to regulating neuronal health, are implicated in both dementia and diseases of the retina (particularly age-related macular degeneration). Read more

Novel disease genes in brain development and decline

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Genetics: Investigating the functional effect of novel genes and genetic variants in malignant hyperthermia susceptibility using model systems

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is an inherited condition, where patients exposed to anaesthetic drugs are susceptible to a dramatic hyperthermic and hypermetabolic response that can contribute to a significant proportion of post-operative morbidity and deaths. Read more
