Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g. Read more

Host-Parasite Interactions

Our lab (. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jo_Cable). investigates host-parasite dynamics and the ecosystem impacts of invasive species. Read more

EASTBIO Colouring the patterns of molecular and phenotypic evolution.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. A paradox lies at the heart of the rules of life that govern organismal form and function. Organisms are built and maintained by networks of genes that interact, moment-to-moment, with each other and with the internal and external environment. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mechanisms of cardiac longevity in the world's longest living vertebrate, The Greenland Shark

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.  It was one of the lesser-known species of sharks up until 2016 when its extreme longevity was revealed. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Defining the physiological role and regulation of biological methylations

The regulation of gene expression and function operates at multiple levels. Metabolic pathways in the cell generate metabolites that directly affect DNA, RNA and proteins, regulating the expression and function of many genes, often feeding back on the very enzymes that catalysed their synthesis.
