Nuclear Dynamics

The study of control of genome function in relation to health, immunity and ageing

colocalisationOur genomes influence, contribute to, or control nearly all aspects of our daily lives, from our health, well-being and longevity, to our susceptibility to disease, our aptitude for learning, and our adaptation and responses to diet, drugs and the environment.

We carry out basic research to create an integrated understanding of control of genome function in relation to health, immunity and ageing.

Discover more about the genome in 3D in the Nuclear Dynamics research feature from the 2016 Annual Research Report.
