Xavier and Betsy, who did Honours with Joel and Ann, respectively, graduated in May in full pomp and ceremony – and Jason got his chance to stand in for Joel on the stage – with the special floppy hat…
Michael, who has just recently finished his PhD at the LMB in Cambridge with Lori Passmore, has been successful in winning an EMBO postdoctoral fellowship to fund his work in Albert Weixlbaumer’s lab in Strasbourg. Here, he will investigate how translation is linked to transcription in bacteria, by assembling complexes of ribosomes and RNA polymerases […]
Congratulations to Mehdi, who has just received the official letter saying he has fulfilled all the requirements for a PhD! Hooray! Now, just the graduation ceremony to come!
Antonia Zech – who worked with Ana for 5 months in 2013-4 as part of her Masters degree in Hamburg – has sent us an update on her activities. She has been doing a PhD at the Institute of Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf – in the group of Lucie […]
We had a visit this week from David Doak – video game designer and architect of our new virtual reality app focused on allowing students to investigate the properties of polypeptides. Jane Allison – molecular dynamics aficionado from Auckland Uni who is involved in the project – popped over the ditch to join in our […]
Well, this paper took quite some time to come to fruition. Biswa from Melbourne worked hard to extract a structure from some less than friendly NMR data on a protein that was gifted to us by Wayne Patrick (formerly in Otago, now in Victoria University Wellington). I’m not sure it’s a gift I’d wish on […]
Xavier Reid graduated today with his BSc with first class Honours – and you can see him here accompanied by his co-supervisor, Dr Jason Low. No one will mention that Jason isn’t wearing his UNSW gown… Xavier has taken the plunge to come back and start a PhD – splitting his time between digging deep […]
…so feel free to congratulate her if you see her around. I’m sure there will be a celebration to follow! Well done Taylor – it’s a mighty achievement.
In exciting news, we have had our paper “The stoichiometry and interactome of the Nucleosome Remodelling and Deacetylase (NuRD) complex are conserved across multiple cell lines” accepted in FEBS J [epub here]. It’s particularly exciting both because it’s Mehdi’s first first-author paper from his PhD and it is also Jason’s first last- and corresponding-author paper. […]
