演題: Cytokine receptor signalling in normal and malignant hemopoiesis
概要:

Cytokine receptors transmit signals between the extracellular environment and the cell’s internal machinery and cause cells to respond in a variety of ways such as maintenance of viability or proliferation. Abnormalities including enhanced cell viability or survival, and increased cell proliferation are hallmarks of cancer.
Our laboratory seeks to understand the mechanism of cytokine receptor activation, in particular GM-CSF, IL-3 and IL-5 receptors, in health and disease. This will reveal universal biological rules and allow the development of new drugs for diseases such as leukaemia, asthma and arthritis.
Our research program includes structural biology approaches to elucidate the structure and function of these receptors; and functional and proteomics approaches to elucidate the signalling mechanisms and functional consequences of cytokine receptor engagement.
