He performed his postdoctoral work with Dr John Diffley at Clare Hall Laboratories and the Francis Crick Institute, London
, where his research showed how the early stages of eukaryotic DNA replication take place.
By establishing for the first time how parental template DNA is melted and unwound during replication initiation, his work led to a molecular understanding of how replication forks are established each S-phase.
Max joined the Cancer Biology Division
at the ICR in October 2019. His laboratory studies how telomeres are duplicated and processed each cell cycle, using a combination of biochemistry, biophysics and genetics.
We are always keen to hear from people interested in joining the lab. Please email [email protected] to find out about available opportunities.
