MRC-PPU Mission

The Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit is one of the world's leading centres studying the role of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation in cell regulation and disease.

MRC-PPU Mission

  • To advance understanding of the role of protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation in cell regulation, with emphasis on research that furthers our understanding of human disease.

  • To organise the Unit in a way that enables it to effectively support the pharmaceutical industry in the development of drugs that modulate phosphorylation and ubiquitylation pathways for the treatment of disease and maximise the translation of our research outputs for clinical and economic benefit.

  • To generate reagents and improved technologies that help to advance research in the fields of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation.

  • To recruit the most driven, talented and creative researchers and provide them with an extraordinary research and training experience.

  • To enhance communication with scientists, the public, policy makers and other stakeholders.
