Who we are
The Lamond Lab are making crucial contributions to society’s efforts to combat COVID-19. This weekend we responded to a call from the Prime Minister to provide vital technology to help expand the national diagnostic testing programme. On Saturday morning the laboratory of Professor Angus Lamond, in the School of Life Sciences, handed over two highly specialised Thermo KingFisher Flex robots to the Royal Navy, for urgent transportation to the first consolidated national diagnostic centre in Milton Keynes.
The Lamond lab has recently published Erosion of human X chromosome inactivation alters proteome expression from genes across the X chromosome and all autosomes, which is work arising from the HIPSCI Initiative (the largest proteomic and genomic characterisation of Induced pluripotent Stem Cells done to date). It characterises the effects of XIST, which inactivates the X chromosome and has major effects on the whole proteome.
