University of Dundee Scientist Awarded £2million for Cancer Research
Professor Karim Labib, a scientist from the University of Dundee has been awarded a £2million grant from Cancer Research UK. The grant will allow Professor Labib to explore the mechanisms that preserve genome integrity during the final stages of chromosome replication in animal cells.
Along with colleagues in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (PPU) at Dundee, Professor Labib will study a worm called Caenorhabditis elegans to understand the mechanisms for replisome disassembly. The teams previous research has suggested that by understanding this process they may be able to identify how to kill certain kinds of cancer cells.
