Sonja studied Biochemistry at the University of Regensburg/Germany and the University of California, Berkeley, and obtained a PhD degree from the University of Oxford.
Two PhD students in the School have been selected to join Europe’s finest University students in creative and intellectual collaboration at Roche Continents 2019.
The highly prestigious Roche Continents - a full week of interdisciplinary challenges and inspiration – selects only 100 students from the sciences and arts at European Universities to attend. Tom Snelling from Philip Cohen's Lab (MRC-PPU) and Margarita Kalamara from Nicola Stanley-Wall’s Lab (Molecular Microbiology) are two of those who will take part in the week of activities in Salzburg in August.
David Virshup, MD, is Director of the Program in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology at the Duke-NUS Medical School, and Professor of Pediatrics at Duke University in the USA. His research focusses on signal transduction pathways, with a special interest in Wnt signaling and circadian rhythms.
The University of Dundee has today awarded an Honorary Doctorate to Dr Samantha Budd Haeberlein who is Vice President of Late Stage Clinical Development at Biogen.
Samantha is a distinguished graduate of Dundee having obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Biochemistry in 1994 and then completing a PhD in 1997 under the supervision of David Nicholls FRS on the bioenergetics of neurons. Since then Samantha has flourished in the pharmaceutical industry over the last 20 years and emerged as a global leader in developing effective therapies against Alzheimer’s disease.
About 10 years ago, the discovery of the Linear Ubiquitin Assembly Complex (LUBAC) revolutionized our understanding of how the master transcription factor NF-B was activated. LUBAC a complex of the three proteins, HOIP, HOIL-1 and Sharpin, produces unique “linear” ubiquitin chains in which ubiquitins are joined to each other by peptide bonds.
