The control of animal biology by calcium signalling



Our aim is to understand the molecular signalling mechanisms that control animal development, behaviour and physiology. We place great emphasis on studying molecular mechanisms in the context of whole animal biology and in using the analysis of whole animal processes to extend our knowledge of fundamental questions at the molecular level. We achieve this by using the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans. See our Research page for more details.
