    Aida Rodrigo Albors, a post-doctoral researcher in Kate Storey’s lab, has been awarded a two-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship. The fellowship will enable Aida to use single-cell transcriptomics and high-resolution microscopy to explore in detail the heterogeneous population of ependymal cells in the mouse spinal cord. Ependymal cells are intriguing because despite having a differentiated phenotype, they retain neural stem cell potential throughout life.

    The College of Life Sciences is delighted to announce the winner of the 2014 Tim Hunt Prize for Cell Biology: Raman Das (Storey Lab) has won this year’s prize for his contribution to the field of Neurobiology. Using advanced imaging Raman has discovered a fundamentally new and unexpected form of cell sub-division, Apical abscission, which impacts cell differentiation.

    A new form of cell sub-division that is key to the development of the nervous system has been identified by researchers at the College of Life Sciences. Neurons are vital to the development of the nervous system and in some regions of our brains they are continually produced throughout our lives. They are `born’ in a particular place in the early nervous system and then have to migrate to the correct place to make functional neural structures. (Attached image shows two newborn neurons shedding their tip ends, or abscising)
