Molecular Biology and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease

Mechanisms of Disease in Age-related Macular Degeneration

Research is focused on two major scientific directions:

  1. Regulation of proteolysis and intracellular trafficking
  2. 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.
