Molecular Biology and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease
Mechanisms of Disease in Age-related Macular Degeneration
Research is focused on two major scientific directions:
- Regulation of proteolysis and intracellular trafficking
- Cell signalling and programmed cell death (apoptosis) regulatory networks
There is a strong track record with close collaborative links on molecular/cellular and systems biology with groups in the Institute of Integrative Biology, as well as national (Manchester, Leeds, Wolverhampton) and international (USA, China, Spain, Singapore) collaborations.
