|Professor Snezana Djordjevic, Director CPD|
In her research Professor Djordjevic combines X-ray crystallography
with NMR spectroscopy and other biophysical and biochemical methods in
order to derive detailed structural and mechanistic understanding of
signalling and medically relevant proteins.
Professor Djordjevic does not teach on the course but is the Director of all CPD courses within Biosciences.
At present, she is developing many new courses and would welcome any collaboration or suggestions from industry.

|Professor Ivan Gout, Course Leader|
The main focus of my
research is the study of basic mechanisms by which cell growth and
metabolism are regulated in normal and cancer cells. There are two
major areas of interest in my laboratory a) regulation of cell growth,
metabolism and proliferation via the mTOR/S6K pathway and b) the role
of Coenzyme A and its derivatives in cellular metabolism and gene
expression. The development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic
approaches for cancer is the ultimate goal of both programmes, which we
pursue through collaboration with academic and industrial partners.

University College London
Scientific interest: Cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying limb regeneration in salamanders. Positional identity in limb regeneration and the dependence of regeneration on the nerve. Regenerative medicine see profile
Professor Geraint Thomas Department of Cell & Developmental Biology, University College London
Scientific interest: Cell signalling mechanisms including protein kinases, phospholipid kinases, phosphlipases and GTP-binding proteins. Raman microspectrosopic imaging in cancer diagnostics. General biochemistry and molecular cell biology
Professor David Gems, Deputy Director Institute of Healthy Ageing
Scientific interests: understanding the genes and biochemical processes by which reduced insulin/IGF-1 signalling and dietary restriction increase lifespan. Using C.elegans as an ideal model organism to study ageing, the lab hopes to unreavel the mystery of human ageing. see profile
