Newcastle Fungal Group

We use fungi to study key aspects of cell biology and disease. Our work encompasses model yeast systems as well as human and plant pathogenic fungi.

Areas of interest include:

  • Carbohydrate Utilisation

  • Cellular Stress Responses

  • Chromatin & Epigenetics


  • DNA Damage Responses

  • High-throughput Screening

  • Nutrient Sensing & Acquisition


  • Pathogenesis & Infection

  • RNA processing & Quality Control

  • Telomere Function
