Microbial and Cellular Sciences

The aim of the Department of Microbial and Cellular Sciences is to study biological processes in micro-organisms and eukaryotic cells at the physiological and molecular level. Our academics are engaged in research relating to microbial bioproduct formation, cancer, vaccine biology, immunology, cell biology, and bacterial and viral pathogenesis in humans and animals. Microbes currently under investigation include the Mycobacteria, Streptomyces, Neisseria, Escherichia coli, Vibrio and Campylobacter, as well as viruses and yeast. Virology studies centre around interactions with the host ribosomal apparatus and are augmented by fundamental work on the translational apparatus of eukaryotic cells. We specialise in studies employing an integrated systems biology approach encompassing laboratory and computational investigation.
