Ida Lindstrom, who visited Joel’s lab from Sweden during her Masters, has returned home and has been busy both starting a PhD in the area of protein interactions involving intrinsically disordered proteins in gene regulation – and getting married. Here is one shot from her wedding day – and you can how address her as […]
Joel ventured out recently for a week of bike touring in Kyrgyzstan – place of wide open spaces, friendly people and spectacular mountain scenery (and yaks). You can read all about it (and look at the pictures) here.
The official letter came today stating that Steph had “satisfied the requirements for the award of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Science)”. Done and dusted! Congratulations from everyone in the lab Steph – here’s hoping it leads to great things…!
The lab just returned from our annual lab retreat- this year in a new location! Traditionally the retreat is held amid the white sands of Hyams beach, but this year we opted for a trip up north to Nelson Bay. In the spirit of new traditions, Jacqui and Ann invented a new game- Science Taboo. […]
In the latest installment of her hit show on Channel 7 – Get Clever – Taylor shows off her fire-making skills for Australia’s youth. You can check it out here (click the photo to access the link…) – look at about 2:20.
Not only has she been planning a wedding, but she’s been publishing senior author papers too. Here is her paper in J Mol Biol describing the combinatorial design of a nanobody that can recognized structured RNA molecules: Marylène’s paper! A nice piece of work – well done Marylène – it’s tough work getting them nailed down in […]
Lab alumnus and phage display aficianado Marylène – who has returned to her native Belgium to forge her research career – recently married her beau Mathieu in what looks to have been a very stylish event. Marylène looked even happier than she was in the lab – which is saying something! They have our best […]
Two papers in two days! Neil, Ngaio, and Athina just had some very exciting binding findings published in PNAS! This work includes Neil’s crazy binding kinetics equations, some gorgeous EMSA data from Ngaio, and other data from Athina, Matt, and Ann. The paper shows that a single disordered region can interact with other structured domains […]
Hot off the presses! Dorothy and Taylor’s new ET paper just came out in JBC! This work features two solution NMR structures of the ET domain of Brd3 bound to peptides from chromatin remodelling proteins CHD4 and Brg1. This work also includes SPR data from Lorna and pulldowns from Jason and Cherry with other contributions […]
Another successful graduation is in the books! This time around it was Ashley, Max, Grace, and Spencer graduating with their Hons. Even though the rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, it did mess with our usual photoshoot and we only managed to capture Ashley and Max in their gowns… Congratulations all around!
