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…
At the Sydney Protein Group’s recent Thompson Prize evening, Mehdi picked up the ATA Scientific Lorne Travel Award (presented by Mark Larance), which will help him attend the 2019 Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function. Well done Mehdi!
Earlier this week, Joel visited his favourite primary school – Strathfield North Public School – where he worked with ~100 year 6 students to get them making electric motors and looking at a dodgy hand-made generator that he has made from a Falcon tube, a film canister, many metres of copper wire, an LED and […]
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. […]
