Personal profile

Biography

Ben is interested in the underlying mechanisms that control cell growth and organisation within a tissue. Working in Prof Kieran Harvey's lab, he is focussed on understanding the Hippo signalling pathway, which controls organ size in diverse species, and is also implicated in a number of human carcinomas. His research uses cutting edge microscopy techniques to investigate the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying Hippo pathway activity in both human cancer cells and the Drosophila model system.

Before joining the Harvey lab, Ben completed his PhD in Prof Clive Wilson's lab at the University of Oxford, UK, where he used Drosophila to study the the cell biological mechanisms of secretion and endosome-mediated degradation. He is experienced with a number of specialised imaging techniques including super-resolution 3D-SIM microscopy and cryo-electron microscopy.
