Dr Shaun Bremner-Hart

  • Lecturer in Molecular Biosciences (Molecular Biosciences)

Biography

Shaun gained a PhD from the University of Glasgow for his investigation into the regulation of cell division.

He then moved to the University of Strathclyde as a Postdoctoral Researcher. Here he studied glucose transporter trafficking and how this process is altered in type 2 diabetes.  

In 2023 Shaun joined the School of Molecular Biosciences as a lecturer.

Research interests

During his PhD, Shaun became familiar with various laboratory techniques and model organisms to study cell biology. He undertook a large genetic screen using fission yeast to identify novel targets which had a role in cell division. Then he utilised human cell lines and in vitro techniques to further profile these novel discoveries.

In his postdoctoral research position, Shaun’s research focused on understanding how cellular systems are altered in type 2 diabetes. He developed a depth of knowledge of various molecular and genetic methods including gene editing (CRISPR), radioactive glucose assays, immunoblotting and various cell-free assays.

Building on international collaborations, currently Shaun is interested in profiling traditional herbal medicine using fission yeast.

In recent years Shaun's research has focused more on scholarship and pedagogy. In particular, Shaun is interested in decolonising the curricula in the context of molecular biology and how novel teaching activities can enhance student engagement and attainment.
