Research interests

Philip Day is Reader in Quantitative Analytical Genomics at Manchester University, Director of the Quantitative Molecular Medicine Group and Principle Investigator at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, and a member of the Centre for Epidemiology and CIGMR, at the Medical Faculty. He currently is developing synthetic biology and chemical biology approaches to directed evolution of novel proteins and aptamers for biomedical applications. These are used in combination with expertise for building integrated pathogenesis models of CML. Other closely related studies concern the enhanced uptake of anti-cancer drugs through membrane associated transporters, and Philip maintains an academic interest in the biological significance of heterogeneity.
