Group Leader and Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry
Knowledge of proteins and other biological macromolecules 3D structures is essential to understand how they work.
Key research questions:
- What are the mechanisms that govern passage of information inside a cell? Can we identify strategies to mimic or regulate them?
- How do proteins recognise different cellular targets, and how is this recognition regulated?
- …ultimately, why does cancer form? What went wrong?
The role of p90 ribosomal S6 kinases (RSKs) in steroid receptor signalling.
Flipping the switch; regulating protein synthesis in response to stress
Targeting the Androgen Receptor and heme synthesis as treatment options for Prostate Cancer
