Discovering how proteins and lipids control the actin cytoskeleton, from biophysical mechanism to molecular behaviour in organisms


  • February 2020:

    Grant and publication success! Jenny starts her Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship and our paper applying phage display phenotypic screening to filopodia-like structures with AstraZeneca Antibody Discovery & Protein Engineering is accepted at Journal of Cell Biology.

  • April 2019:

    Uli gives a seminar talk at Virginia Tech in the US and an invited talk at the British Applied Maths Colloquium in Bath.

  • March 2019:

    Pantelis goes to the Advanced Optical Microscopy course at the Plymouth Marine Biological Association.

  • January 2019:

    Our newest manuscript on actin dynamics and the variable composition of actin regulatory proteins is up on the bioRxiv.

    Jenny enjoyed participating in a Company of Biologists workshop on reconstituting the cell cytoskeleton, giving a talk and interacting with colleagues.

    We are lucky to have two excellent Part II students from the Department of Biochemistry join us for their eight week projects.

  • December 2018:

    We bid farewell to Bish who moves on to a new postdoc position at the Crick Institute! Good luck with her future endeavours!

  • November 2018:

    We say goodbye to Hanae who successfully defended her thesis and starts a postdoc position at the Salk Institute. We wish her all the best!
