One of the most abundant forms of posttranslational modifications of proteins in cells is phosphorylation. This modification is regulated by kinases, reversible and thus highly dynamic. However, our ability to measure and monitor the dynamics of phosphorylation in vivo in real time are currently very limited. Being able to visualise this process in real time would shed light on the fundamental question of where biochemical reactions take place within cells and what their immediate consequences are.
Recruitment for our Wellcome 4-Year PhD Programme in Integrated molecular, cellular and translational biology is now open. Greater than 40 different supervisors participate with diverse research areas. Further information can be found on the programme website. Students on this programme will carry out three short laboratory placements prior to selection of main PhD project.
