Dr Violaine Sée; Principal investigator

PhD in molecular and cellular pharmacology, University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France

V See has a background in cell signalling and neuro-oncology. In 2005, VS obtained a BBSRC David Phillips fellowship to work on temporal and spatial regulation of intracellular signals. She is now lecturer in the department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at the University of Liverpool. During her fellowship, VS has demonstrated the importance of intracellular dynamic of transcription factors to control gene transcription and cell fate (Ashall et al, Science, 2009; Meley et al, Cell Death and Disease 2010). She has developed her research on hypoxia signalling and has shown the importance the timing of hypoxia inducible factor to control on cell fate and drug resistance (Bagnall et al, J. Biol. Chem., 2014; Fan et al, Plos One, 2015), Herrmann et al, Oncogenesis 2015). Since April 2011, she has been co-director with Dr Daimark Bennett of the Liverpool Centre for Cell Imaging. She co-chairs with B Pizer, a paediatric oncologist at Alder Hey Children’s hospital, the Liverpool Paediatric Cancer Biology Group.
