Head of School

School of Biosciences

Research in Steve Busby’s lab is concerned with understanding the molecular mechanisms that control gene expression in bacteria, with particular attention to studying the regulation of transcription initiation in Escherichia coli. Much of the recent work has focussed on the expression of virulence determinants in pathogenic strains.

Dr Aditi Kanhere

Dr Aditi Kanhere

Research Fellow

School of Biosciences

Dr Aditi Kanhere’s research focuses on understanding how non-coding RNA, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications regulate gene expression changes in normal and diseased conditions. Her laboratory integrates cutting-edge genomics technologies with computational methods to understand mechanisms of transcription regulation in cancer.

Dr Anne Marie Krachler

Birmingham Fellow

School of Biosciences

Anne Marie Krachler - Research in 60 seconds videoAnne-Marie Krachler joined the University of Birmingham as a Birmingham Fellow and EMBO Fellow in 2012 and is based at the Institute of Microbiology and Infection within the School of Biosciences. Her lab studies interactions between bacterial pathogens and their host and how this knowledge can be used to fight bacterial infections and gain novel insight into eukaryotic signaling mechanisms.
