This masterclass will be delivered by Dr Dan Tennant and Dr Aga Gambus.
Dr Dan Tennant did his BA and MSci at Cambridge University, reading Natural Sciences. After his Ph.D. at the University of Manchester in diabetic neuropathy, investigating the role of hypoxia and metabolic alterations on Schwann cell number in peripheral nerves. Once completed, he went to the CR-UK Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in Glasgow to take up a post-doctoral fellowship. While in Glasgow, Dan spent five and a half years investigating tumour hypoxia, and elucidated a role for prolyl hydroxylases (PHDs) in tumour growth. He then took up a lectureship at UoB in April 2011. Dan's lab now consists of 4 Ph.D. students, 3 post-doctoral research fellows and a technician, and is doing research into hypoxia and metabolism in cancer.
Dr Aga Gambus moved to Birmingham in 2011 with the remaining of her postdoctoral Sir Henry Wellcome fellowship. In 2013 Aga started her independent group after being awarded MRC Career Development Fellowship and Birmingham Fellows Fellowship. Aga’s research focuses on understanding the regulation of chromosomal DNA replication.
