About us

We are an energetic team of researchers investigating the epigenetic mechanisms underlying normal and malignant hematopoiesis. By using a combination of in vitro culture systems and in vivo models of hematopoiesis and leukemia, we aim to uncover fundamental biological aspects of DNA methylation and chromatin in gene expression and use this knowledge to explore novel therapeutic opportunities for treatment of blood cancers with mutations in the DNA methylation machinery.

Our lab is located in Centre of Gene Regulation & Expression (GRE) within the School of Life Sciences at one of the UK’s leading universities – University of Dundee is internationally recognised for expertise across a range of disciplines and research breakthroughs in multiple areas, including science, medicine and engineering, amongst many others. It is consistently ranked near the top of UK universities, particularly in the life sciences.

Conveniently located on the banks of River Tay, our main city-centre campus is at the heart of Dundee – an up-and-coming, friendly, compact and affordable city with a rich heritage in design and technology.  Just a short walk from the V&A Museum of Design Dundee, we’re close to both the train and bus stations. Dundee is set on the east coast of Scotland in an area of outstanding beauty, including large sandy beaches and challenging hills.
