Behavioural Ecology in Animal Populations

Swabirds in sunset
We study how environmental conditions in early life carry over to affect later life traits that affect health, fitness and disease.

Frungillo Lab

Welcome to Frungillo Lab! Our group uses interdisciplinary approaches to uncover molecular mechanism in plant nutrition, and aims to provide sustainable alternatives for increasing crop production to meet global food security needs. We are based at the Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences, University of Edinburgh.

Jeyaprakash Arulanandam (JP) lab

Professor A. Jeyaprakash Arulanandam (JP) lab website. Personal Chair of Structural Biology, Co-Head, Institute of Cell Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh.

Adele Marston Lab

Adele Marston lab group website. Professor of Cell Biology and Wellcome Investigator.

Parasite Immuno-epidemiology Group (P.I.G)

Information about the Parasite Immuno-epidemiology Group (P.I.G).

Regan Lab

Regan Lab researches why males and females have different responses to infection, why the sexes age differently, and how immunity and ageing interact. We want to find ways to target the immune system to promote healthy ageing in both sexes. We are based in the Institute of Immunology and Infection in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh.

Welburn lab

Julie Welburn lab group website, Personal Chair of Mechanistic Cell Biology. Institute of Cell Biology.

Postdoctoral Researchers
