A list of our investigators
|Adrian Bird||We use genetic manipulation technology to selectively ablate cells within the brain and other tissues based on X-inactivation choice. The results will shed light on tissue/organ plasticity and may have therapeutic implications.||School of Biological Sciencesemail@example.com|
|Karl Burgess||Metabolomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics, Industrial Biotechnology||School of Biological Sciencesfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Sara Buonomo||Understanding the functional relationships between DNA replication, nuclear organisation and gene expression.||School of Biological Sciences||
|Elise Cachat||Engineering new synthetic gene circuits in mammalian cells: sensing modules, reporting modules and actuation modules (e.g. locomotion, apoptosis). Cells endowed with these new functions can be used to sense the presence of specific stimuli in their environment and report or act upon it.||School of Biological Sciencesemail@example.com|
|Jane Calvert||Science and Technology Studies; Responsible Research and Innovation; Philosophy of Biology; Science Policy||Science, Technology and Innovation Studiesfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Jamie Davies||Synthetic morphogenesis, tissue engineering, pharmacology.||CMVM (Deanery of Biomedical Sciences)||email@example.com|
Standardisation in mammalian synthetic biology; metabolic metrology; engineering biology for organ-on-chip systems
|School of Engineering||Alistair.Elfick@ed.ac.uk|
|William C. Earnshaw||Cell cycle, mitosis, mitotic chromosome structure, centromeres, kinetochores, epigenetics and human artificial chromosomes.||Wellcome Centre of Cell Biology/ School of Biological Sciencesfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Tilo Kunath||Producing next-generation human cell products for Parkinson’s research and advanced therapies using synbio approaches.||CRM/ School of Biological Sciencesemail@example.com|
Open Research and Research Data Management, implemented locally through the Bio_RDM team (please contact mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org), and institutionally through partnership with the University's Research Data Services.
Science policy and Research community organisation, which overlaps with Research on Research and the Science of Network Science. Implemented in collaboration with Science, Technology and Innovation Studies and Edinburgh Business School, and via Scottish and UK policy engagement.

We are developing tools to automate microbial culturing as well as to increase the analytical capability we can obtain during microbial culture growth. A recent start-up from our lab, OG Bio (https://www.ogibio.com/) is commercializing some of the technology.

|Susan Rosser||CHO cell engineering, theranostics, crispr cell engineering, diagnostics and sensors.||School of Biological Sciencesfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Abdenour Soufi||Understanding the chromatin basis that control cellular identity. We exploit and develop synthetic biology approaches to reprogramme mammalian cells from one type to another.||CRM/ School of Biological Sciences||Abdenour.Soufi@ed.ac.uk|
The systems biology of cellular decision-making, particularly the response of budding yeast to stress.
