Project summary

Elton began his Fellowship in October 2010, and is currently based in the laboratory of Dr Frank Sicheri at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto. He aims to investigate the molecular assembly of important multi-protein complexes by using structural biology. In collaboration with Dr Kei Sakamoto at the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit in Dundee, he will undertake research to enhance the knowledge gained through structural biology, and carry out work aimed at understanding the function of biologically important signalling and metabolic components.
