Relevant news from the lab
Briony Parker is joining the Lab to complete her second project towards her MRes in Molecular Plant and Microbial Science. Briony will work on the genetic mechanisms regulating root electrotropism in Arabidopsis.
Maddalena Salvalaio joined our Lab as a Research Technician. She will help us extend our results on Arabidopsis root electrotropism onto crop species. The project is funded by the BBSRC Impact Acceleration Award. Welcome Maddalena, and enjoy the cool project!
GS was invited at the Electrical Cell Biology workshop organised by the Bio-Electrical Engineering (BEE) innovation hub at Warwick University. The title of the talk was "Feel the force: root electrotropism in Arabidopsis". The workshop was a great success, and shows an exciting community emerging around the novel concept of Bioelectricity!
Three new undergraduate students joined our Lab to complete their final year project: Danyn Patel, Finbar Gaffey and Hannah Wilson. Welcome to all of you, it will be fun!
The brand new Imperial College Network of Excellence 'Physics of Life' has been launched! Our Lab is proudly a member of the Network, and we believe it will act as a springboard for further collaborations at the intersection between Physics and Life Sciences. This can be only good news!
The Lab has successfully secured a short BBSRC Impact Acceleration Award to support the project "Towards a novel root guidance system for intelligent agriculture".
