Professor Kate Storey has been awarded the Waddington Medal by the British Society for Developmental Biology. The Waddington Medal is the only national award in Developmental Biology. It honours outstanding research performance as well as services to the subject community. The medal is awarded annually at the BSDB Spring Meeting, where the recipient presents the Waddington Medal Lecture. Professor Storey is Head of the Division of Cell & Developmental Biology and Chair of Neural Development in the School of Life Sciences at Dundee.

Asymmetric cell division is the process through which one cell divides into two cells with different identities. It is of particular importance for stem cells, which divide asymmetrically into another stem cell (thus self-renewing themselves) and a cell destined to become a more specialised cell type, such as for example a neuron or a muscle cell. A model of choice for the study of asymmetric stem cell division are neuroblasts, neural stem cells of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.

David Murray has joined the Division of Cell and Developmental Biology. David comes from Marino Zerial’s laboratory at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Germany, where he was a postdoctoral researcher.
21 Jun 2018
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.
