Research interests

The Dillingham Laboratory is studying mechanistic aspects of DNA:protein interactions which underpin DNA replication, repair, recombination and segregation. At the moment we are especially interested in:

(1) DNA helicases as modular components of molecular machines

(2) The initiation of double-stranded DNA break repair and how it can be modulated for medical and biotech applications

(3) The role of helicases in suppressing replication:transcription conflicts

(4) The mechanism of chromosome individualisation and segregation by ParB and SMC complexes

(5) DNA mimic proteins and their potential applications in medicine and biotechnology


Join our group! We are always interested in hearing from talented scientists who wish to join the laboratory. Please contact Mark for an informal discussion of the opportunities that are currently available.
