Research at GEE
GEE is a vibrant research department comprising more than thirty members of staff and research fellows. Our research is supported by extensive external funding from research councils and charities.
Research in the Department falls under a number of overlapping themes. Please click on the headings below to explore our work and the research interests of individual staff members.
|Biodiversity and Environmental Biology|
|Biology of Ageing|
|Evolution and Development|
Jürg Bähler:genome regulation, yeast, gene expression, genetic variability and networks
David Gems: ageing, worms
Anjali Goswami: mammalian evolution, morphometrics
Nick Lane: mitochondria evolutionary biochemistry, bioenergetics, cell biology, mitochondria
Paola Oliveri: evo-devo, gene networks, sea urchin
Linda Partridge: evolutionary genomics, genetics of ageing, Drosophila
Daniel Pearce: ageing, stem cells
Eugene Schuster: gene regulation, ageing, functional genomics, bioinformatics
Hazel Smith: evolution of development, stalk-eyed flies, fish
Max Telford: biodiversity, evolution, evo-devo, phylogenetics
Astrid Wingler: plant biology, plant metabolism, senescence, stress response
|Human Genetics and Human Evolution|
In their work, GEE researchers can rely on the services of a number of in-house facilities, both within GEE and within UCL. These comprise state-of the art omics analyses centres and high-performance computing, as well as a field station.
GEE is home to and member of a number of intra- and inter-institutional research institutes and centres. These organisations regroup researchers with shared interests in ageing, human genetics, mathematical modelling or ecology and evolution within GEE, UCL and the wider London academic landscape.
