We study how eukaryotic cell biology is shaped by protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation. Driven by our curiosity and passion to understand living creatures, our work aims to change lives by helping to cure human disease. With support from the MRC and a range of charities, we collaborate with leading research centres around the world. We also work with clinicians and pharmaceutical companies to translate our discoveries into medical progress. Find out more about our Research.
Inspired by the fact that science knows no borders, people from more than 60 countries produce a vibrant and friendly working environment in the MRC PPU and the School of Life Sciences. With an emphasis on collaboration and the exchange of ideas, our PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and technicians have access to world-class research facilities in one of the UK’s top research institutions.
