Discovering how proteins and lipids control the actin cytoskeleton, from biophysical mechanism to molecular behaviour in organisms
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.
Uli gives a seminar talk at Virginia Tech in the US and an invited talk at the British Applied Maths Colloquium in Bath.
Pantelis goes to the Advanced Optical Microscopy course at the Plymouth Marine Biological Association.
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.
We bid farewell to Bish who moves on to a new postdoc position at the Crick Institute! Good luck with her future endeavours!
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!
