The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

The BBSRC announced the latest tranche of strategic LoLa (Longer and Larger) awards on 11th December 2013.


One of these is a £2.8M award to Professor Steve Russell and Professor Alfonso Martinez-Arias of the Department of Genetics, Kathryn Lilley in the Department of Biochemistry, and colleagues from the University of Manchester and UCL. Led by Simon Hubbard in Manchester, the BBSRC Drosophila Developmental Interactome Project aims to carry out a quantitative analysis of the Drosophila proteome across embryonic development, characterise protein interactions in key signalling pathways, and relate alternative mRNA splicing to sub-cellular protein localisation.
