Revealing epigenetic signaling mechanisms in genome regulation and cancer.

We are looking for highly motivated PhD students to join our efforts to reveal epigenetic mechanisms that regulate the function of eukaryotic genomes in health and disease. Read more

MSc by Research: Bringing proteins together with functional small molecules

Recent advances from the Ciulli Lab and others have contributed to the establishment of a game-changing new modality of chemical intervention into biological system – one that moves beyond the state-of-the-art. Read more

Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells. Read more

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

The role of vimentin in cell adhesion and motility in disease

This role supports an active research program to assess the molecular mechanisms underlying adhesive, mechanical and motile changes in cells as they relate to vimentin, the intracellular protein, and its assembled filamentous form in vimentin intermediate filaments. Read more

Understanding cellular receptors mediating signalling and viral infection - molecular mechanisms and development of new therapeutics

Cellular receptors initiate signalling pathways that regulate all aspects of cell behaviour and these receptors are key therapeutic targets for a wide range of diseases including cardiovascular disease and cancer. Read more

Genome Diversification in Cancer and Adaptive Immunity

Genomic instability (GI) is a hallmark of cancer that plays a central role in its initiation and development. GI can arise as a result of germline and somatic mutations that compromise a cell’s ability to accurately sense, signal or repair DNA damage. Read more

Obtaining an integrated understanding of oncogenic RAS signalling

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. The physiological importance of RAS signalling is evident as about 25% of all human cancers harbour mutations in ras genes, where kras is most frequently mutated (about 18%) (COSMIC, v94). Read more

Targeting ovarian cancer using fragment-based drug discovery

This is a 3 year CDT funded straight-to-PhD studentship. High-grade serous carcinoma is the commonest type of ovarian cancer and accounts for approximately two-thirds of all cases and nearly 80% of deaths. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation and mechanics in polarity

Membranes and their protein organization are a frontier in our understanding of cell biology. We focus on polarized trafficking as a model to uncover fundamental mechanisms in the organization of structures at membranes. Read more
