Exploiting rare polymorphisms, structural variation, and germline-somatic mutation interactions to explain missing heritability in cancer development.

Understanding cancer heritability has an enormous impact on disease prevention, early detection and tailored treatment. GWAS based on single nucleotide polymorphisms only explain a modest fraction (2-15%) of heritable variation in cancer risk (McCarroll, 2008). 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

Phenotypic characterisation of red and white blood cells from patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is escalating at an alarming rate, with almost 10% of the UK population suffering from T2DM or in a pre-diabetic state. Read more

Genetics: Investigating the molecular basis of optic nerve degeneration in glaucoma to try and develop a personalized medicine strategy for treatment

The optic nerve is a special sensory nerve that transmits visual impulses from the retina to the brain. Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy of multifactorial origin that affects 1 in 10 elderly individuals. Read more

Genetics: Genetic studies of developmental eye disorders to investigate genotype-phenotype correlations

Developmental eye defects that affect the front of the eye give rise to a spectrum of congenital ocular phenotypes that affect the cornea, lens, iris, trabecular meshwork or the globe itself. Read more

Elucidating eukaryotic Topoisomerase III activity in homologous recombination

  Research Group: Genome
DNA topoisomerases are a family of enzymes that mediate topological transformations of genomic DNA across all domains of life—facilitating transcription, replication, the dissolution of homologous recombination intermediates, and the segregation of chromosomes in mitosis and meiosis. Read more

Recombination mechanisms in immunity and cancer

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
