Course content

Our goal is to understand the fundamental biochemistry and cell science that underlies normal development and that goes awry during human diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer disease, Fanconi anaemia, Kallmann syndrome, heart disease and ischemia.

Our research programmes, which are generously funded through grants from the BBSRC, EPSRC, Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, Royal Society and other charities, span disciplines from essential protein biology and glycobiology to cell signalling and gene regulation. Our investigators are involved in translational research for applications in drug discovery and tissue engineering.
