CRISPR-based mitophagy screens for regulators of mitochondrial protein import quality control

Mitophagy is a highly selective form of autophagy (cellular self-eating) for the removal of damaged or redundant mitochondria. Failures in its regulation are implicated in numerous human diseases. Read more

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: Developing rapid and low-cost mass spectrometry-based identification of biological sex in fossils

The analysis of proteins preserved in archaeological and paleontological contexts (termed palaeoproteomics) is an exciting new area in archaeological science, generating ground-breaking new insights into the phylogenies of extinct species, human and animal diets, as well as patterns of health and disease.

ACCE DTP fully-funded project: History and impacts of microplastic pollution in UK salt marshes

Microplastics have been observed around the world in marine, coastal, freshwater and estuarine environments. Microplastics are taken up by organisms and transferred up the food chain which has implications for the health of coastal ecosystems. Read more

Understanding complement system dysregulation in the tumour microenvironment

Inducing a stress response analogous to anti-viral immunity is important for maximising immune responses against the tumour. However, tumours evolve evasion strategies that can limit these responses. Read more

Understanding the effects of immunomodulatory therapies on radiation response

Radiotherapy can ablate tumours through inducing both DNA damage and anti-tumour inflammatory responses. However, innate immunity pathways mounting inflammatory responses can also afford cell intrinsic radioresistance. Read more

Drosophila as a model to study redox signalling and diet-induced obesity in ageing

  Research Group: Redox Metabolism
A PhD Studentship is available under the supervision of Dr Helena Cochemé (Redox Metabolism Group) at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, Imperial College London. Read more

The molecular basis of quiescence and implications in tumorigenesis

  Research Group: Cell Cycle Control
Our lab aims to understand how proliferation-quiescence decisions are made in human cells. After cell division, cells either re-enter the cell cycle and proliferate, or exit the cell cycle and enter quiescence. Read more

Targeting polymerase theta as a way to improve radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

Despite technical improvements in radiation delivery, survival rates following radical radiotherapy remain poor for many tumour types and the radiation delivered to adjacent tissues is still frequently associated with significant side-effects. Read more

Investigating the regulation and role of AMPKy2 phosphorylation in vivo

  Research Group: Cellular Stress
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) plays an important role in maintaining energy homeostasis in eukaryotic cells1,2. In multicellular organisms, the role of AMPK has been adapted to play a role in integrating energy metabolism at an organismal level. Read more

Ubiquitin signalling in the pathogenesis and radiotherapy of glioblastoma

Glioblastoma accounts for more than 4000 deaths every year in the UK. The cornerstone of glioblastoma treatment is constituted by maximal surgical resection, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Read more
