Centre for Cell Signalling and Molecular Genetics
The Centre for Cell Signalling and Molecular Genetics was established in March 2008 by Patrick Maxwell and Margaret Ashcroft.
The main goal of the centre is to understand the key cellular mechanisms involved in oxygen sensing and hypoxia signalling in mammalian cells. In particular, the centre has a strong interest in the hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) family of transcription factors and their role in cancer and other diseases. The centre takes multidisciplinary collaborative approaches to pursue scientific questions combining both basic and translational research.
