In dividing cells, faithful duplication of the genome must be accompanied by reproduction of the chromatin landscape on new DNA. Our research focuses on how human cells replicate chromatin and ensure transmission of genetic and epigenetic information during cell division.

The Institute of Cell and Molecular Biosciences (ICaMB) is a major UK biosciences research institute that has a wide range of world-class support facilities, including services for cell imaging, bioinformatics and proteomics, equipment to support transcriptomics and X-ray crystallography and a category 3 containment suite. Moreover, the Institute provides access to novel robotic systems that allow us perform highthroughput, systematic, yeast genetics. The facility is equipped with an S and P Robotics, Biomatrix 3, colony handler and a Beckman Biomek FX liquid handler.
