The All-Ireland Chromatin Consortium was established in 2021 to foster collaborations between researchers located across the whole of Ireland, promote scientific exchange, and to facilitate networking between students, postdocs, and PIs working in the field of chromatin biology. Keynote Speaker - Robin Allshire, Ph.D. - Professor of Chromosome Biology, Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh > Seminar Title: ‘Epigenetic Routes to Antifungal/Fungicide Resistance’ Prof. Robin Allshire is Professor of Chromosome Biology at University of Edinburgh and a Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow. His research group at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology focuses on the epigenetic mechanisms governing the assembly of specialised domains of chromatin and their transmission through cell division. He is elected an EMBO member and Fellow of the Royal Society and Academy of Medical Sciences.

Allshire Lab

Allshire Lab

The Allshire Lab is focused on studying epigenetics and specialized chromatin domains. They aim to understand how chromatin post-translational modifications regulate gene expression and maintain cell states. Their research also includes investigating heterochromatin formation, the role of heterochromatin in gene silencing, and the assembly and regulation of CENP-A chromatin at centromeres. The lab uses model organisms like fission yeast to uncover important principles applicable across different species. Led by Professor Robin Allshire, the lab includes senior researchers, postdoctoral researchers, and PhD students.
