The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (MRCPPU) is a major Research Centre that focuses on the understanding of the biological roles of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation and how disruption of these processes cause human diseases such as neurodegeneration, cancer, hypertension and immune disorders.
The Dundee MRCPPU operates as a focal point between life scientists, pharmaceutical companies and clinicians. The aim is to provide a deeper understanding of disease processes to ultimately develop new cures.
The Unit, located within the Dundee School of Life Sciences provides an exciting research environment and a unique research and training experience. The MRC Unit is comitted to providing MRC Summer Studentships to undergraduate students sharing an enthusiasm for Biomedical Science.
