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


  • September 2020:

    Our latest paper is out! Fantastic collaboration with Olivier Devuyst’s lab at the University of Zurich. Alpelisib rescues actin phenotypes and endocytic uptake in OCRL deficient cells and improves proteinuria in the mouse model of Lowe syndrome/Dent disease 2. Featured in Business Weekly, Cambridge Network and EurekAlert

  • August 2020:

    We’re expanding! Pankti our new research assistant starts and we are hiring a new postdoc.

  • June 2020:

    Exciting finding in Cell from Krogan, Grosse and colleagues in COVID lockdown - filopodia are produced by SARS-CoV2 infection, Jenny comments on

  • March 2020:

    We say goodbye to Uli who is continuing his theoretical work at DAMPT in Cambridge, looking forward to a socially distanced coffee soon!

  • 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.
