tRNA Biology

Dr Vincent Kelly

Associate Professor

Biological sciences have witnessed an explosion of new discoveries in recent years, partially as a result of a better understanding of the genome, its regulation and the processes controlling protein translation. New modes of therapy arising from this new knowledge include stem cells, CAR T cells, gene therapy, nuclease-based genome editing, to name but a few. The real-world application of scientific research has always been of great interest to me and has driven the research of my lab to span a mixture of academic and commercial projects.
