The National Heart and Lung Institute

The National Heart and Lung Institute is an Institute of Imperial College London, Faculty of Medicine based on sites at Royal Brompton and Harefield, Hammersmith, St Mary’s, South Kensington and Charing Cross. The Institute has, as its central interest, all aspects of heart, lung and cardiovascular disease and includes sections working in respiratory, cardiovascular and molecular medicine. Professor Tony Magee is an established leader in the field of lipid modification of proteins and has made major contributions in protein prenylation (co-discovering the prenylation of Ras proteins), protein acylation (of Ras proteins and Src family kinases) and lipid rafts (identifying a key role in T cell receptor signaling). His current interests are in the enzymes catalyzing acylation of cytoplasmic and secreted proteins, in the functional role of protein acylation e.g. in lipid rafts and signalling, and in novel applications of advanced light microscopy imaging.
