Dr Karl Norris


I completed my PhD in 2018 where I investigated the role of eIF2B bodies and their role in translational regulation in Dr Susan Campbell’s group. Following a short postdoctoral position at Lancaster University, I moved to Leeds where I currently study the structure and function of heterogeneous ribosomes in Drosophila melanogaster gonads in the research groups of Dr Julie Aspden and Dr Juan Fontana.
