Janna Luessing

Dr Janna LuessingSenior ResearcherHosted by Noel LowndesSFI-IRC Pathway Programmejanna.luessing@universityofgalway.ie Research interests Research overview Mutations caused by damage to our genetic material can result in genome instability. These mutations can either be silent and inconsequential or they can lead to cell… Continue Reading →

Prof Noel LowndesEstablished Professor of BiochemistryDirector of the CCBSFI Future Frontiers & EMBO Membernoel.lowndes@universityofgalway.ie Research interests Research overview Pathways required to maintain genome stability are potently tumour suppressive, while genome instability is a hallmark of cancer. Our research aims to… Continue Reading →

Bob Lahue

Prof Bob Lahue Professor in Biochemistrybob.lahue@universityofgalway.ie Research interests Research overview Our chromosomes constantly undergo the opposing forces of DNA mutagenesis and DNA repair. Mutagenesis is incredibly frequent at trinucleotide repeats in families with certain hereditary neurological diseases. These site-specific expansions,… Continue Reading →
