Dr Roberto Bellelli
Lecturer

My lab aims to understand the basic mechanisms controlling DNA replication in mammalian cells and how disruption of this process leads to genomic instability and cancer.

Dr Gabriella Ficz
Senior Lecturer

My group aims to discover the epigenetic changes taking place during cancer initiation and develop potential drugs that can prevent these changes which may be abnormal but reversible, before many damaging mutations occur.

Dr Zuzana Horejsi
Lecturer

My lab focuses on discovering functions of phosphorylation induced by damaged DNA in normal and cancer cells, and investigating the role of different phosphorylation events in cancer development.

Dr Sarah Martin
Reader in Cancer Cell Biology; Director of Graduate Studies for Research (BCI)

Our research group is involved in investigating nuclear and mitochondrial DNA repair as a therapeutic target in cancer. In particular, we have focused on the DNA mismatch repairĀ (MMR) pathway, the system for recognising and repairing mistakes in DNA replication and so preventing genetic mutations.

Dr Sarah McClelland
Reader in Cancer Cell Biology

My lab aims to understand the mechanisms that underlie numerical and structural chromosome aberrations in cancer at a molecular level, which also involves understanding how normal cells replicate and segregate their genomes.

Dr Lovorka Stojic
Lecturer

My group studies how RNA-mediated mechanisms, in particular long noncoding RNAs, regulate cell division and how dysregulation of these processes leads to genome instability and cancer.

Dr Giulia Guiducci

My research activity aims to characterise lncRNAs involved in the maintenance of genomic stability and to understand how their dysregulation can lead to cancer development.

Dr Meryem Ozgencil

My project focuses on identifying phosphorylation regulated interactions of DNA Damage repair proteins, and investigating the functional role of these interactions for DNA damage repair and cancer development.
