Project: Analysis of virulence in Candida species in Prof. Geraldine Butler's lab The Butler group uses genome-wide analysis to identify regulators of biofilm development, and other factors associated with virulence.
The European Seventh Framework Programme has just announced funding for a four-year international research programme lead by Professor William Gallagher. The programme, SYS-MEL, is centred on new diagnostics in the melanoma arena. It is hoped that the programme will enable scientists to generate clinical assays that will benefit melanoma patients by predicting who will require aggressive treatment, and which patients will respond to specific therapies.
Antibody Engineering Know-How (04/06/2013)
Antibodies are of enormous value to society as therapeutic and diagnostic agents. There are many scientists worldwide interested in producing their own novel engineered antibody based molecules as part of their research work. SBBS scientist, Dr David O'Connell in collaboration with UCD Nanomedicine Centre has published an accessible instruction manual detailing how to make antigen binding molecules for molecular studies and translational research.
