Welcome to our newest PIs in GRE, Federico Pelisch and Kasper Rasmussen

The newest laboratories in the School have been established in the Centre for Gene Regulation and Expression. Former postdoctoral researcher in the Centre, Federico Pelisch, is now establishing his own research group following the award of an MRC Career Development Fellowship while Kasper Rasmussen, joins us from the Biotech Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC) at the University of Copenhagen.

Pelisch Laboratory Research Overview

Professor Victoria Cowling receives Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award

Professor Victoria Cowling was selected by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as one of their case studies for the launch last week of their new prestigious £900 million Future Leaders Fellowship Scheme. In 2007, she was a recipient of UK government funding through a Medical Research Council (MRC) Career Development Award. This initial investment in Vicky to allowed her to study a cancer-causing protein called Myc.

New Proteomic Study of Trypanosome Cell Cycle

A new study entitled “Proteomic Analysis of the Cell Cycle of Procylic Form Trypanosoma brucei” has just been published in Molecular and Cellular Proteomics (Crozier et al., 2018, Mol Cell Proteomics 2018 17: 1184-1195). This study resulted from a collaboration between the laboratories of Mike Ferguson (BCDD) and Angus Lamond (GRE).  Trypanosoma brucei is an evolutionarily divergent eukaryotic protozoan parasite that causes human and animal trypanosomiasis (also called ‘sleeping sickness’) in sub-Saharan Africa.
