The goal of our laboratory is to understand the gene networks that regulate normal growth and development and underlie aberrant events such as tumour formation and metastasis. We are particularly interested in the regulation of these processes by reversible protein phosphorylation, which is a critically important mechanism controlling cellular behaviour, and especially by protein phosphatases, which have been relatively under-investigated.

Over the last 5 years our work has been published in Nature Genetics, Developmental Cell, Journal of Cell Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, EMBO Reports, Journal of Molecular Biology, Genetics and other journal and book chapters. See the links above for more details about our research.
