    Matthew Parker and Giulia Saredi have been awarded SULSA ECR development funding in the first round of the scheme. The scheme is aimed at helping postdocs with two or more years post-PhD experience develop their own projects and begin the process of becoming independent researchers. The money is used to upskill, start new collaborations, or generate pilot data.

    Scientists at the University of Dundee and the EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) have published online some of the largest and highest resolution images yet recorded of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the cause of the Covid-19 pandemic. The images were collected by a consortium of researchers from the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, Erasmus MC University Medical Center Rotterdam, and Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

    A University of Dundee researcher has been awarded £1.6 million in funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to develop machine learning tools for the life sciences. Machine learning has rapidly transformed many aspects of our daily lives in the last decade. It is also increasingly playing a vital role in analysing biomedical data. However, using these techniques to answer fundamental, mechanistic questions about biological processes remains challenging.

    A new theory on collective cell migration has been published in Nature Communications this week. This collaborative work from Rastko Sknepnek, a Senior Lecturer in Physics based in Life Sciences and Science and Engineering in the University, Silke Henkes from the University of Bristol and Eric Bertin from Universite Grenoble Alpes provides new details on this process which is important in embryonic development, organ regeneration and wound healing.
