Mammalian Cell Biology & Immunology

Lead: Professor Steve Todryk  Meet our staff

This well-established and internationally recognised group of academics, led by Professor Stephen Todryk, undertake work in the following areas:

  • Arthritis research
  • Biomarker analysis
  • Cancer and mammalian cell biology
  • Drug metabolism and toxicity
  • Genomics and Proteomics of eukaryotes
  • Molecular mechanisms of ageing
  • Molecular modelling
  • Neurological diseases
  • Serpins in cardiovascular disease
  • T-cell immunology
  • Topoisomerases in therapy-related leukemia
  • Vaccine design

We are members of the Cellular & Molecular Sciences research area, a multi-disciplinary group based in the Department of Applied Sciences.  The group broadly aims to contribute applied and fundamental science approaches to underpin aspects of healthcare and to extend understanding of diseases processes. We are funded by companies, charities and research council grants. We welcome interest from potential doctoral and post-doctoral researchers interested in working with us. Please contact the research leads below.


Research in the Mammalian Cell Biology & Immunology Group is supported by recently refurbished tissue culture, immunology, molecular biology and -omics laboratories. Key equipment includes:

  • MSD Biomarker analytical equipment
  • Acea Xcelligence for cell function assays
  • ELIspot assays and ELISA/advanced Western blotting capability (Syngene GBox Chemi XX6 ECL imaging)
  • Taqman real-time PCR
  • 8-colour flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy platforms
  • llumina MiSeqTM high throughput DNA sequencing platform (see NU-OMICS).
