Stuart McKellar, a Wellcome-Trust funded PhD student, has decided to join my lab to work on some very nasty bugs! This work, in collaboration with Ross Fitzgerald’s group in Roslin and Jai Tree in Sydney, promises to unravel new layers and mechanisms of gene regulation in nasty bacteria!
Karen Julia (aka Jule) is a summer student from Germany that decided to join our lab to help Ira out with her projects.
All I can say is that it has something to do with pores!
Sander was extremely pleased to hear that he was awarded the 2015 School of Biological Sciences Recognizing Excellence award; Knowledge Exchange and Commercialization.
This award was given as a recognition for his work on protein-RNA interactions and the impact it had on many RNA groups in the School. The Granneman lab has been collaborating closely with its industrial partner (UVO3) for many years and this has resulted in the development of several UV cross-linking machines that have been sold all over the world.
