Professor Alan Ladbury is the dean of the Faculty of Biological Sciences and Professor of Mechanistic Biology in the University’s Faculty of Biological Sciences.
His research interests explore the “Mechanistic basis of pathological signal transduction”. With a focus on early signalling events, Alan is exploring the structural, biophysical, and cellular outcomes of protein complex formation at receptors. Perturbation of these complexes by inhibiting assembly or modifying the time course reveals how the exquisite sensitivity of early signalling complex formation can ensure specificity and lead to disease.
