About

PhD Title: Structure and Function of GPCRs

Supervisors: Professor Mark Wheatley, Dr Josh Rappaport

Studying β-arrestin mediated desensitization/internalisation pathways of GPCRs by utilization of Bimolecular fluorescence complementation assay (BiFC).

Qualifications

  • BSc Hons. Zoology
  • MSc Molecular Biology/Biochemistry

Biography

Studied Zoology at Lahore College for Women University, Lahore, Pakistan and developed interest in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. After successful completion of BSc Hons. degree in Zoology studied for a MSc in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan . After the completion of MSc Maria Tahir worked as a research associate at Interdisciplinary research center in biomedical materials (IRCBM) http://ircbm.ciitlahore.edu.pk/ for two years.

Research

Involvement of different downstream effector proteins in desensitization/internalisation pathway of GPCRs. Utilisation of various fluorescent protein involving techniques in studying the β-arrestin mediated desensitization/internalisation of GPCR.
