About this community
Undertakes innovative biomedical research to discover the molecular mechanisms that underlie normal cellular processes and functions, and how, over lifetime, their failure or abnormality may lead to disease
The Babraham Institute is located six miles south-east of the university city of Cambridge, UK. We undertake innovative biomedical research to discover the molecular mechanisms that underlie normal cellular processes and functions, and how, over lifetime, their failure or abnormality may lead to disease. The Institute is a registered charity, sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), to underpin its national responsibilities for healthcare research and training.
Our research is also supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and many medical charities and other organisations.

Integrative analysis of transcriptional activity and genome architecture changes upon viral infections (2018-06-29)To study the interplay between spatial nuclear architecture and transcriptional activity during viral infections, I employed a genome-wide chromosome conformation capture approach (Hi-C) on infected murine and human cells ...
(2018-07-21)This thesis reports investigations of the interactions between the intestinal epithelial barrier and the intracellular apicomplexan Eimeria spp., both in vivo and in vitro. Initially, conventional in vivo studies using ...
(2018-05-19)The mammalian epigenome is globally reprogrammed at two stages of development; this involves the erasure and re-establishment of DNA methylation by both passive and active mechanisms, including DNA repair pathways, and ...
