We are part of the MRC Protein Phosphorylation & Ubiquitylation Unit at the University of Dundee.
The major goal of our lab is to discover the fundamental principles of how signal transduction is mediated by the posttranslational modification of proteins. We focus on the ubiquitin system as the attachment of ubiquitin to proteins is fundamentally important for many cellular processes and essential for maintaining cellular homeostasis. In our research we use a multidisciplinary approach with techniques ranging from biochemistry, structural biology and proteomics to studies in model organisms to gain mechanistic and functional insights into ubiquitin signalling mechanisms in health and disease.
Our lab is a diverse, multicultural and multinational environment with individuals from different parts of the world who have a rich variety of backgrounds and approaches to life. Our aim is to welcome all people to our lab, regardless of race, gender, social background or sexual preference. In our lab, we care deeply about integrity, inclusivity, diversity, team work and dedication. We promote these values and strive to uphold them in our daily life.
