Cell Biology, Development and Genetics

We use model organisms and in vitro approaches to explore a wide range of processes pertinent to cell biology. Many of the groups have an interest in understanding the molecular mechanisms controlling cell proliferation, differentiation and cell fate determination in the context of development. We also study processes regulating cell division and polarisation, immunity, and cell senescence, as well as developing and applying bio-nanotechnology and proteomic approaches for cell biological purposes.
