UCL Division of Medicine
Cell Signalling and Molecular Genetics
The main goal of the Centre for Cell Signalling and Molecular Genetics is to understand the key cellular mechanisms involved in oxygen sensing and hypoxia signalling in mammalian cells. The centre has a strong interest in the hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) family of transcription factors and their role in cancer and other diseases. In particular, the centre is focused on understanding the role of mitochondria in HIF signalling and vice versa. In addition, the centre takes multidisciplinary collaborative approaches to pursue translational research.
Head of Centre
Professor Margaret Ashcroft heads the Centre for Cell Signalling and Molecular Genetics within the Division, which is home to both non-clinical and clinical research scientists.
