Patrick Eyers (University of Liverpool, IDG)
Patrick Eyers is Professor of Cell Signaling and Head of the Department of Biochemistry and Systems Biology, in the Institute of Systems, Molecular and Integrative Biology at the University of Liverpool. His multidisciplinary research lab focusses on cell signaling, protein phosphorylation, sulfation and chemical biology especially of Tribbles (TRIB) pseudokinases. Pat is interested in the molecular analysis of human protein pseudokinases and members of the 'dark' kinome, which contains many new drug targets. His lab employs chemical genetics to uncover the effects of small molecules on (pseudo)kinase function in vitro and in vivo.
