Cell and Intracellular Signalling

The emphasis of our work is the cellular response to metabolic stress, particularly in relation to cancer, chronic metabolic disease, and the interaction between the foeto-placental unit and maternal obesity in pregnancy.

Hormonal action requires the transfer of information from the extracellular environment into cells, where downstream target processes (in the nuclear and extra-nuclear compartments) are affected.

Research within the Division of Metabolic and Vascular Health is aimed at understanding the mechanisms through which such ‘signal transduction’ occurs normally, or is disrupted under different (patho)physiological conditions.
