Biochemistry Focus webinar series

60 mins

Part of our dedicated Biochemistry Focus Early Career Researcher (ECR) series, this session explored the mechanisms of NanR gene repression, pyrimidine metabolism and the EML4-ALK gene fusion protein.


  • Chris Horne - 'Mechanism of NanR gene repression and allosteric induction of bacterial sialic acid metabolism'
  • Josephina Sampson - 'Understanding and targeting oncogenic biomolecular compartments of ALK kinase'
  • Cassie Clarke - 'Pyrimidine metabolism influences neutrophil behaviour to prime the metastatic microenvironment'

This webinar was chaired by Dr Jamie Blaza, UKRI Future Leader Fellow & Lecturer at the University of York.
