Freeman Group celebrate Grant Success

Members of the Freeman Group are celebrating following grant awards in March.

Adam Grieve and Kyo Ikeda both were awarded Marie-Curie Fellowships and Sonia Muliyil was successful in her grant application to the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP). 

‘Discovering the signalling pathways and physiology of active rhomboid proteases in the brain’ is Adam’s project to assist our understanding of neurobiological disorders and diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

By combining top-down and bottom up approaches Kyo hopes to develop a cell biological and mechanistic insight into cell signalling in his project titled ‘RhomBioID: Molecular mechanisms of rhomboid-like proteins in human immunity’.

Sonia celebrates her fellowship award from the HFSP for her project ‘Dissecting the role of iRhoms in protein quality control in the Drosophila nervous system.’ Sonia is trying to understand the cellular mechanisms by which iRhom acts, as well as the physiological significance of its upregulation in neurons.
