Scholarship Description:

The aim of the project is to identify Adeno-associated virus (AAV) toxicity biomarkers by cutting edge spatial proteomics tools in vitro.

AAV is a small parvovirus composed of a capsid, which can be engineered to act as a vector delivery system for gene therapy or to enable in vivo expression of biologics. In a minority of cases, application of AAV based therapies lead to adverse effects (AE) in the clinic, including liver toxicity.

You will employ a multi-omics approach to characterize AAV-cell interactions, using novel spatial proteomics methods developed by Professor Kathryn Lilley's group (http://proteomics.bio.cam.ac.uk/), that accurately locate proteins to subcellular structures on a proteome wide scale
