Tennant Research Group
INVESTIGATING OXYGEN-MEDIATED CONTROL of METABOLISM
Set up in 2011, the Tennant research group is situated within the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research in the University of Birmingham. We study the role of oxygen in the control of metabolism, both through use of genetic models as well as low oxygen workstations. Stable isotope tracing is performed through the facilities provided by the Metabolic Tracer Analysis Core (MTAC) within the Institute, and provides the high resolution data required to infer changes in metabolic phenotype in response to perturbations.
