Jin Rui (Amos) Liang has opened his laboratory in the Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (MRC PPU). Amos intends to identify and characterise other novel factors that regulate ERphagy. He will also explore the physiological roles of ERphagy and investigate how ERphagy is disrupted in diseases such as cancer. His laboratory will exploit state-of-the-art CRISPR-based gene editing and genome-wide screening technology, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), mass spectrometry, fluorescence microscopy, and biochemical studies to interrogate ERphagy in different cell types.
