'Molecular nutrition of the gut-liver axis: the impact of dietary fibres for the small intestine’

Professor Muller is a renowned expert in the area of molecular nutrition related to lipid homeostasis, nutrigenomics and nutritional systems biology and his work is focussed on the molecular mechanisms underlying genome-wide effects of foods (specific bioactive components or nutrients) on immuno-metabolic health and plasticity.

Findlay lab makes new insights into the molecular pathways that cause intellectual disability

New research by Greg Findlay’s group in the MRC-PPU has made progress in understanding the fundamentals of intellectual disability, a developmental disorder thought to affect 1-2% of the world’s population. The paper by Francisco Bustos, a post-doctoral investigator, and Anna Segarra-Fas, a PhD student in Greg’s lab, shows that genetic mutations found in intellectual disability patients impair the catalytic activity of an E3 ubiquitin ligase called RNF12.
