Altin Group - Tumour immunology and liposome targeting group »
Led by: Joe Altin
The Altin group on tumour immunology and liposome targeting.
Badger Group - Photosynthetic functional genomics »
Led by: Murray Badger
The Badger Group is focused on understanding the ways different photosynthetic organisms have adapted to efficiently fix CO2, where CO2 is a limiting substrate.
Ball (Eldon) Group - The molecular basis of coral biology »
Led by: Eldon Ball
We use molecular tools to investigate many aspects of coral biology including comparative genomics, development, stress responses and calcification.
Behm Group - Nematode molecular biology »
Led by: Carol Behm
We use powerful biological resources provided by C. elegans to study aspects of nematode biochemistry, molecular biology and behaviour, and control methods.
Callaghan Group - Human disease and membrane transport »
Led by: Richard Callaghan
Our research focuses on understanding the contributions of membrane transport processes to disease and overcoming their impact in treating disease.
Chow Group - Thylakoid structure and function »
Led by: Wah Chow
We investigate the structural organization of the thylakoid membrane; electron flow in leaves; quantification of Photosystem II; and photodamage.
Chung Group - Biophysics of ion channels »
Led by: Shin-Ho Chung
We are developing a computational program to study the interaction between polypetpides (drugs, toxins, other large molecules) and membrane ion channels.
Cooper Group - Insect physiology, salt and water regulation »
Led by: Paul Cooper
Group research topics include insect physiology, salt and water regulation; locust and grapevine scale biology, and environmental physiology.
Evans Group - Physiology of photosynthesis; interactions with nitrogen »
Led by: John Evans
We study relating photosynthesis to nitrogen; CO2 diffusion within leaves; analysing how plants acclimate to their light environment.
Maleszka Group - From molecules to behaviour »
Led by: Ryszard Maleszka
We are investigating diverse epigenetic mechanisms in the context of behaviour and developmental plasticity, mainly using the honey bee model.
Verma Group - Bacterial and bacteriophage genetics, and vaccine development »
Led by: Naresh Verma
We investigate the molecular mechanism of the O-antigen modification in S. flexneri by studying the structure proteins responsible for these changes.
