Prestigious fellowship for young Nottingham researcher
Date:2/3/2009

A promising young researcher at The University of Nottingham has been awarded a prestigious national fellowship to support her work investigating the molecular biology of hepatitis C virus.

Dr Catherine Jopling, of the University's School of Pharmacy, has received more than 1 million in funding over five years from a David Phillips fellowship given by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

Dr Jopling said: "I'm delighted to have been awarded this fellowship. It will be enormously helpful in allowing me to set up my own group and to pursue this exciting research."

The fellowship will cover her salary and provide research funding to allow her to continue with work started while a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University in the US looking at micro-RNAs, tiny molecules that play a major part in controlling gene expression in cells.

Dr Jopling's research focuses on miR-122, a specialised liver microRNA which interacts with hepatitis C virus (HCV) in an unusual way and plays an important role in helping the virus to replicate itself, an essential part of the viral life cycle.

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne infectious disease which currently affects around two per cent of the population. The infection can go undetected for a long period of time because it often produces no or few symptoms but as the disease becomes more chronic it can lead to serious scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) and even cancer.

Dr Jopling's research looking at how HCV hijacks miR122 to help in its attack on the liver has been recognised by the BBSRC because of the important role it plays in developing our understanding of gene expression and the basic biology of microRNA activity. In the future, the work may also have implications for medical advances if more can be understood about the process by which HCV replicates and spreads, new drugs which act by blocking this action could be developed to help halt the
