Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (MRC-PPU)
We study how eukaryotic cell biology is shaped by protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation. Driven by our curiosity and passion to understand living creatures, our work aims to change lives by helping to cure human disease.
The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit (PPU) is a major research centre that focuses on the understanding of the biological roles of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation and how disruption of these processes cause human diseases such as neurodegeneration, cancer, hypertension and immune disorders.
The ultimate goal of the Unit’s research programmes is to help develop new improved strategies to treat disease. The MRC-PPU operates as a focal point between life scientists, pharmaceutical companies and clinicians to ensure that we make a critical contribution to medical research, together reaching a deeper understanding of disease.

Parkinson’s UK leadership team and people affected by the disease visited the University of Dundee to meet with local researchers to get an overview of the work that they do.
A University of Dundee expert has been named as one of the rising stars of European science.
Dr Greg Findlay and Professor Satpal Virdee, Principal Investigators in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit, have been awarded Wellcome Discovery Awards.
Nick Brewer, Ian Ganley, and Yogesh Kulathu have been promoted to Personal Chair (Professor) as part of the 2022 Annual Review process for academic staff.
The annual third year PhD poster session took place last week with excellent entries from students across the School.
Exciting new work just published by the Kulathu Lab describes the molecular players and biochemical principles that govern attachment of UFM1 onto ribosomes.
