Welcome to the Freeman Lab


Research in the Freeman lab focuses on the cell biology of intercellular signalling. In recent years our main efforts have been on the rhomboid-like clan of intramembrane proteases and their inactive relatives.

We also have an interest in using Drosophila genetics to investigate conserved human proteins of unknown function.

Our longterm goal is to use model organisms and cellular models to understand the cellular processes that underlie human disease.

We are members of the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, which is in Oxford, UK.
