Jens Januschke awarded tenure

Dr Jens Januschke from the Division of Cell and Developmental Biology has been awarded tenure this week. His research focus is on how stem cells work and sometimes malfunction in the developing nervous system of Drosophila.

Jens joined the School of Life Sciences in 2012 as a Principal Investigator, where in February 2013 he was awarded a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship. He received an extension to this fellowship in January this year.  

Kim Dale named Best Postgraduate Supervisor in Student Led Teaching Awards

Last Friday, the Dundee University Student Association (DUSA) celebrated the lecturers who help make our university one of the best in the world, at their annual Student Led Teaching Awards (SLTA).

Kim Dale from the School was named Best Postgraduate Supervisor after being shortlisted for the second year in a row. “I am so touched to have been nominated by two of my PhD students, Lucas Morales Moya and Francesca Carrieri, as they both know it is one of the parts I love most about my job,” said Kim.

Independent Investigator (in Cell & Developmental Biology)

The Division of Cell and Developmental Biology within the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, consists of 8 research groups studying the regulation of differentiation in developing organisms, stem cells and adult tissues and how this is altered in disease states. Our work combines classical embryology and genetic approaches as well as mathematical modelling to understand gene regulation and function.
