Established in 1994, the laboratory is over 25 years old, and 2020 marks our fourth decade of research. Originally in London (Imperial College 1994 - 2004 and University of Cambridge 2005 - 2013), we have been at the School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee since 2014. Our website provides information on research, publications and contacts.Welcome_files/Logo.svg
