Dr Ajay Mishra has joined the Cambridge Infinitus Research Centre (CIRCE) team as the new Head of Biology. His goal at CIRCE is to investigate the molecular regulation underlying proteostasis and its role in ageing and neurodegeneration.
Ajay obtained his D.Phil. in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford where he studied the molecular regulation of chromosome segregation during cell division. Later, in his post-doctoral research at CRUK-Cambridge Institute and King's College London, he investigated the molecular mechanisms of stem cell differentiation and tissue homeostasis in human skin by proteo-genomic approaches.
