Postdoctoral Research Fellow level 1


Within cells, organelles communicate and transfer material between themselves using membrane traffic pathways. The secretory pathway is responsible for the delivery of newly synthesised proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface. This pathway is balanced the retrograde pathway, which brings cargo from cell surface and endosomal system to the Golgi complex and eventually the endoplasmic reticulum. We only have a relatively poor understanding of the molecular machinery regulating retrograde traffic, despite this route being potentially useful for drug delivery to cells. In this project automated high content screening microscopy combined with systematic gene knockdown will be used to identify and understand the molecules associated with this pathway in cultured mammalian cells. Cell biology and biochemical techniques will then be employed to characterise candidates in greater detail, potentially providing new avenues for improved drug delivery.
