Dr Gideon Coster’s team investigates how cells produce accurate copies of their genome during cell division. Importantly, errors during genome replication can be both a cause, and a consequence, of cancer.
Dr Gideon Coster studies how errors during genome DNA replication are avoided or dealt with using a combination of in vitro biochemistry, genetics, proteomics and cell biology. He joined the ICR in October 2018 as a Sir Henry Dale Fellow.
Manuel obtained his PhD from the University of Birmingham in 2018. In January 2019 he joined Dr Gideon Coster's lab at the ICR to investigate mismatch repair and DNA replication.
