Programme(s) to which this project applies:
|☒ MPhil/PhD||☑ MRes[Med]||☒ URIS|
Objective and Significance:
Research Plan and Methodology:
We aim to develop effective and reversible molecular switches to alter PI biogenesis in live cells. PI is one of the key secondary messengers in many cellular signal pathways. We will apply chemical and optogentical approaches to spatiotemporally manipulate PI production at various organelles. Specifically, we will focus on the functional outcome of PI biogenesis alteration in cell migration and cancer invadosome formation.
