The IMS-MRL is participating once again in this year’s Cambridge Festival and our researchers are looking forward to sharing their work with the wider public. We have three main activities coming up: Escape Room: Research Breakthrough In a new pop-up escape room from the IMS-MRL, members of the public are invited to tackle fun puzzles […]
Phosphoproteomics reveals rewiring of the insulin signaling network and multi-nodal defects in insulin resistance
Research led by Daniel Fazakerley together with colleagues in Australia, has shed new light on the causes of insulin resistance by identifying new ways to improve insulin sensitivity in experimental models. The hormone insulin lowers blood glucose after a meal by “talking” to muscle and fat tissues to encourage them to take up more glucose. […]

The way genes are switched on in one-cell embryos may resemble the trigger for cancer.
A collaborative study involving scientists at the IMS-MRL (Giles Yeo, Brian Lam, Kara Rainbow and Marcella Ma), the University of Bath and colleagues in Germany and the US, has shown for the first time that genes in the mouse embryo are switched on in a pre-set order after fertilisation and that the genome switches on […]
