Insulin-mediated regulation of adipocyte lipolysis

Insulin, a hormone that is released after a meal, regulates many aspects of metabolism including a process called lipolysis that involves the release of fatty acids into the circula more...

Molecular insights into a novel mammalian oxygen-sensing pathway

Oxygen (O2) is a vital biological resource most prominently known for its role as the final electron acceptor in aerobic respiration and, as such, adequate molecular mechanisms are more...

Control of immune cell activity via a redox switch in integrin

Our immune system protects us from invasion of pathogens and toxic materials. Immune cells such as monocytes and neutrophils circulate in the blood to monitor foreign materials and more...

Genetics of Healthy Ageing

By exploiting the vast genetic landscape of an outbred mouse population we aim to explore the molecular cause of a range of diseases that limit healthy ageing in humans. This includ more...

Do co-occurring plants avoid competing for N?

All plants require nitrogen, so how can species co-exist if they're competing for the same limiting resource? This project will examine the hypothesis that plants avoid competing fo more...

Uncovering the source of CO2 that’s respired when dry soil is rewet

Soil respiration is one of the largest components of the global C cycle, but also one of the hardest to model. A key aspect of this difficulty is that we do not have a good mechanis more...
