Cellular Architecture and Dynamics

Building on School strengths in both cell biology and molecular protein science

The group studies processes that are relevant to important diseases such as cancer, infertility, heart disease, deafness, blindness, Parkinson’s and autoimmune diseases.

The Cellular Architecture and Dynamics group build on School strengths in both cell biology and molecular protein science to study the generation, sensing and control of mechanical forces in living cells at all levels from the single molecule to the cell. The core group studies molecular motors, cell adhesion and nuclear processes but brings in wide collaborations from across the School, Faculty and University to generate a multidisciplinary approach to address biological questions. The group has a strong record of attracting funding (> £4m currently) and high-quality Research Fellows.
