Jürg Bähler

Jürg Bähler is a Professor of Systems Biology at University College London. His laboratory studies genome regulation during cellular proliferation, quiescence, and ageing using fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) as a model system. They apply multiple genetic, computational and genome-wide approaches for systems-level understanding of regulatory processes and complex relationships between genotype, phenotype, and environment, including roles of genome variation and evolution, transcriptome regulation, and non-coding RNAs.

Jürg Bähler is an elected Member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, and he received a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.

Kathryn Ball

Kathryn Ball trained as an enzymologist and protein biochemist. She was awarded a Broodbank Fellowship (University of Cambridge) and was the first CRUK Senior Cancer Research Fellow (University of Dundee). She moved to the University of Edinburgh in 2004 where she is the Professor of Biochemistry and Cell Signalling. Her current research is focused on protein structure function analysis and the mechanisms underlying the regulation of protein function by ubiquitin in human health and disease.
