Cell Signalling in Yeast

The Yeast Signalling Group uses the eukaryotic model 'Saccharomyces cerevisiae’ to study the responses to oxidative stress in conjunction with cellular aging mechanisms. Specifically, our work encompasses the molecular, cellular and genetic study of both the cellular signalling pathways that mediate the previous processes and the important role that the availability of iron and associated proteins plays in cellular anti-aging and anti-oxidative stress mechanisms, such as autophagy and mitophagy. Modeling in yeast allowing us to extrapolate of our knowledge to mouse and human models.
