Protocol titled "Measuring Caspase Activity by Forster Resonance Energy Transfer" has been published in the Cold Spring Harbor Protocols in January 2015. 

Paper titled "A systems biological analysis of apoptosome formation and apoptosis execution supports allosteric procaspase‑9 activation" has been published by RCSI partners in Journal of Biological Chemistry in September 2014. It describes the findings regarding dogma that all initiator procaspases require homodimerization for activation during apoptosome formation.

Review article titled "Key regulators of apoptosis execution as biomarker candidates in melanoma" has been published in Molecular and Cellular Oncology in September 2014
Paper titled " Modulation of apoptosis sensitivity through the interplay with autophagic and proteasomal degradation pathways" has been published by RCSI partners in Cell Death & Disease in January 2014. It discusses the influence of autophagic and proteasomal activity on apoptosis susceptibility, which is now rapidly gaining more attention as a significant modulator of cell death signalling in the context of human health and disease, such as melanoma.
