One of our projects has been selected as eligible for a NERC-funded PhD scholarship. See our Positions tab for details and how to apply.
Giovanni gave a talk at the Darwin Society (Un. of Cambridge), titled "The physics of self-organizing tissues: Arabidopsis root as a model system"
Philip Lee is a student of the MRes Molecular Plant and Microbial Sciences, joining the Lab for his first project.
He will work with NIck to study root electrotropism in Arabidopsis.
Giovanni gave a talk at the EMBO conference "The molecular and cellular basis of regeneration and tissue repair", held in Paestum (Italy) on September 17-21.
The full programme of the conference can be found here. It has been lots of fun and we met so many new interesting people!
Nick had his manuscript "Externally Imposed Electric Field Enhances Plant Root Tip Regeneration" accepted in the journal Regeneration. Congratulations!
It is a very intriguing piece of work on Arabidopsis root regeneration under the stimulus of an external static electric field. NIck is now working on the molecular mechanisms behind this process. Please come back for more!
Ricardo (Rico) Randall is joining us as post-doc (PDRA), to work on cell division dynamics during root regeneration, using our Light Sheet Microscope. Rico is a plant biologist by training, but very keen to refine his quantitative skills. His project is in collaboration with Prof. Henrik Jensen at the Centre for Complexity Science here at Imperial. Welcome, Rico!
Sainsbury Laboratory Symposium
It was fun and inspiring! Lots of new ideas and friends.
