02 Jun 2022

The EMBO Workshop entitled “Reversible phosphorylation, signal integration and drug discovery” concluded last week in Vouliagmeni, near Athens, Greece  with a special lecture to mark the seminal contributions made by Tricia Cohen to the field of Protein Phosphatases. The lecture, sponsored by the International Union of Biochemistry (IUBMB), was given by Alexandra Newton of the University of California at San Diego and entitled “Protein kinase C emerging from quarantine: Phosphate as a safety switch”.

Tricia, who was the co-founding Principal Investigator of the MRC PPU when it started in October 1990, died from Lymphoma in August 2020. Philip Cohen, who was married to Tricia for over 50 years, was present at the meeting to hear Alexandra deliver the lecture.
