My main research interest is mitochondriology in health and disease. This broad interest encompasses the spectrum of research covered by our Mitochondrial Research Group. Currently, I have projects that focus on the molecular aetiology of mitochondrial disease, treatment regimes for these disorders, mitochondrial genetics and a large concern in mitochondrial gene expression in man. These interests have substantial overlaps and by detailing a process of mitochondrial transfection, we hope to be able to manipulate the mitochondrial genome and to establish the fundamentals of mitochondrial gene expression.
CURRENT VACANCIES IN THE LIGHTOWLERS LABORATORY
We are currently advertising for Ph.D students, postdoctoral students and scientific officers in the area of mitochondrial gene expression and its role in disease. If anyone has an interest in this area, please contact me by email (email@example.com) or by 'phone for informal discussions (01912228028)
