Research groups

The Arkell Group - Early Mammalian Development »

We aim to understand complex molecular processes by which these transcription factors interact with signal transduction pathways, chromatin and RNA.

The Burgio Group - Genome editing »

By studying how the CRISPR/Cas systems have evolved and diversified against bacteriophage invasion, our laboratory seeks to develop new gene-editing tools.

The Burr Group - Cancer Immunology and Epigenetics »

In the Burr laboratory, we aim to uncover the molecular mechanisms by which cancer cells evade surveillance and control by the immune system.

The Eyras Group - Computational RNA Biology »

The Eyras Group is working to understand the biology of RNA and cancer using computational methods.

The Fischer Group - Epigenetics and Genomic Stability »

The Fischer lab investigates the connection between chromatin structure, pervasive transcription and RNA surveillance, and their influence on genomic stability.

The Gardiner Group - Mechanisms of Thrombosis and Cancer »

The group investigates the molecular basis of processes coordinated by platelets across vascular biology.

The Hannan Group - Cancer Therapeutics »

This group focuses on the molecular analysis of major pro-malignant transcription factor networks that operate in cancer cells using an integrated approach.

The Hayashi Group - Transposon defence and animal development »

We are interested in learning gene expression control mechanisms through the lens of host-transposon interaction and how they play roles in animal development.

The Horikawa Group - Lymphocyte signalling and lymphoma pathogenesis »

The Horikawa group studies the molecular mechanisms of development and activation of normal and malignant lymphocytes.

The Lee Group - Optical Biofluidic Imaging Group »

Develop novel bioimaging instruments and informatics tools to explore, discover and profile 3D cell shape under flow with optics and machine learning.

The Parish Group - Cancer & Vascular Biology »

The Cancer and Vascular Biology Group has been working for a number of years on the molecular basis of cell adhesion, cell migration and cell invasion.

The Polizzotto Group - Clinical Hub for Interventional Research »

CHOIR is the central point for early phase clinical research within the College of Health and Medicine.

The Preiss Group - RNA Biology »

Our group studies the mechanisms and transcriptome-wide patterns of eukaryotic mRNA translation and its regulation by RNA-binding proteins and non-coding RNA.

The Quinn Group - Cancer Models »

The Quinn Group's current research involves generating genetic models using Drosophila melanogaster to understand the initiation and progression of human cancer

The Schulte Group - Systems Biology of Cancer »

The Schulte Group investigates therapy options arising from the nucleolar stress response.

The Shirokikh Group - Protein Biosynthesis and Homeostatic Control »

Our main approach is to precisely define the types of rapid cell responses by analysing the gene-specific levels of translation.

The Soboleva Group - Germ Cell and Cancer Epigenetics »

The Soboleva Group studies mechanisms by which epigenetics controls cell differentiation and how those processes are affected in cancer.

The Thompson Group - Epithelial Biology »

Our lab studies the molecular mechanisms of epithelial tissue development, tissue regeneration and carcinoma formation.

The Tremethick Group - Chromatin and transcriptional regulation during development »

Chromatin and transcriptional regulation during development

The Wen Group - Computational Biology of RNAs and Functional Genomics »

The Wen Group is a new computational biology lab of RNA and functional genomics, Department of Genome Sciences, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU.
