Lab research groups

Each of our researchers heads up a research group:

  • Professor Carolyn Moores: cytoskeletal dynamics and function.
  • Professor Neil McDonald: growth factor-stimulated signalling mechanisms.
  • 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.
  • Dr Mark Williams: Molecular simulation approaches to biomolecular thermodynamics; empirical structure-thermodynamic relationships; structure-based inhibitor design.
