Lab research groups

Each of our researchers heads up a research group.

  • Dr Renos Savva: virus-encoded proteins and their biologically significant complexes. Recombinant method development and library-based workflows.
  • Professor Carolyn Moores: cytoskeletal dynamics and function.
  • Professor Neil McDonald: growth factor-stimulated signalling mechanisms.
  • Professor Nicholas Keep: proteins implicated in dormancy and resuscitation in M.tuberculosis and proteins involved in muscular dystrophy. 
  • Dr Tracey Barrett: understanding how Kaposi's Sarcoma-Associated Herpes Virus (KSHV) subverts host cellular mechanisms to avoid immune detection and promote proliferation. DNA repair with particular emphasis on proteins involved in base excision repair, eukaryotic homologous recombination and processing of general DNA damage. 
  • Professor Helen Saibil: studies of macromolecular machines operation using three-dimensional electron microscopy. 
  • Professor Bonnie Wallace: structure/function studies on channels and membrane proteins and circular dichroism spectroscopy of proteins and peptides.
