Dr Allinson's work is aimed at gaining a better understanding of how cells respond to DNA damage. The two main areas of her research are (i) understanding how skin cells respond to damage caused by ultraviolet radiation and (ii) the mechanisms underlying the repair of breaks in the DNA backbone and factors that might affect their efficiency.
