Globe iconRosemary O'Connor joined the Department of Biochemistry in 1997. She was appointed as Professor of Cell Biology in 2007 and was Head of Department from 2008 to 2010. Prior to this she held appointments as Lecturer/Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor in Biochemistry. She holds a BSc. from University College Galway and a Ph.D. from NUI Maynooth. Research experience was gained in the USA and Germany in academia (the Institute of Pathology of the University of Wuerzburg, Germany and the Wistar Institute at U PENN, Philadelphia) and in Industry (Immunogen, Inc., Cambridge, Massachusetts) where her contributions led to new drug discovery and clinical trials. In UCC she established the Cell Biology Laboratory which focuses on Insulin like Growth Factor actions particularly in cancer and neurodegeneration, although applications of this research extend to most branches of biology. She was a founding Investigator of the Biosciences Institute and is the Director of a structured PhD training program in Cancer Biology. She served on a number of scientific boards and advisory committees for the European Union, Science Foundation Ireland, the Breast Cancer Campaign (UK), and Irish Cancer Society. She was awarded the Irish Area Section Medal by the Biochemical Society in 2007 and  Chaired the Gordon Research Conference on Insulin-like Growth Factors in Physiology and Disease in 2011.

Research Interests

Insulin and the Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGF-I and II) are essential hormones for normal growth during development, but are also essential for maintaining cell survival and metabolism. Importantly in adults, IGF-1 promotes regeneration of damaged tissues as well as tumour growth and cancer invasiveness.  Individuals with low IGF-1 levels are protected from cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, starvation associated with lowering IGF levels may restore metabolic balance and protect from these diseases. 

Our research programme is focused on the molecular mechanisms that regulate the IGF signalling pathway, how insulin and IGF actions are different, and how they may be manipulated in cancer, neurodegeneration, and tissue regeneration.

 


 

(1) Regulation of IGF-I signalling;  (2) how IGF-I Receptor function is distinguished from Insulin Receptor function; and (3) characterizarion of novel IGF-I-regulated proteins.

 

By combining mutational analysis of the IGF-IR with protein interaction studies we have determined the mechanisms by which IGF-IR signaling is regulated and propagated in cancer cells through association with adapter proteins, phosphatases, and adhesion receptors. Some of these interactions may distinguish cancer cells and normal cells. These findings have revealed how the IGF-IR contributes to tumour growth and invasiveness and also have relevance for selecting tumours that may responsive to IGF-IR targeting. 

 

We have recently isolated a panel of new IGF-I-regulated proteins (

Mystique/PDLIM2, PNC1, PBK, WDR3, and Hrg-1

) that have fundamental functions in normal development and cell biology, and may also promote cancer cell growth or invasiveness.
