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. […]
Congratulations to Ingrid and Percy on the successful and drama-free (as much as it can be) birth of their son Toby Macindoe. He was born on Feb 18 at Prince of Wales and both he and his mother are doing just fine!
Nina Ripin, who spent some months in the lab as a Masters’ student in 2011, is the lead author on a nice study focused on the RNA-binding properties of HuR in the latest PNAS. She has combined NMR and X-ray crystallography while working in Fred Allain’s lab at ETH in Zurich to characterize the means […]
This year, we had a return to the green lawn of Marrickville Croquet Club for our lab Xmas excursion. As always, a fine time was had by all – it really is a great venue for a day out…
Lab alumna Taylor Szyszka has a position now at UTS where she is coordinating an outreach program for female high school students. It’s a great program that is trying to reach both local and more distant schools in NSW and allowing them to highlight the contributions of *local* women across all these fields. The other […]
…as a thank you PhD present? I can’t decide which is my favourite part – the craft beer, the Clif bars that have been lovingly brought all the way from the US or the NMR needlepoint! Well, OK, I can decide… Thanks very much Taylor! And great to hear that the STEM job at UTS […]
Lab alumna Fionna Loughlin – now working at Monash – has published the culmination of several years of her postdoctoral work in Fred Allain’s lab at ETH in Zurich just last week in Molecular Cell [here]. She has determined the structures of several domains of the protein FUS bound to RNA sequences, and shown how […]
…and stops herself from otherwise going mad! Hooray – well done Taylor! Now you can get back to all those things you used to do, like sleeping, not spending every weekend in front of a computer in the lab – that sort of thing…
