Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology, Strand. 4.2 Bio-adaptor for cell control and interfacing - Temporal clocking
Miron graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Huddersfield and later received his Master degree from the Liverpool John Moores University focusing on Drug discovery and Design.
Miron started his doctoral studies at Newcastle University in September 2019 in the group of Dr Yulia Yuzenkova.
In his project, he aims to observe, understand and reproduce the mechanisms by which cells keep time. Cyanobacteria Synechococcus elongatus are essential components of planetary ecosystems, providing essential molecules through photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation. A strong biological clock, termed circadian rhythm, controls the timing of all involved processes. Work is currently carried out to provide insight into the mechanisms that allow such a rhythm to function.
