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”.

EMBL invites researchers, entrepreneurs, investors as well as members of its own community – including alumni and staff – to Dundee, the City of Discovery, for EMBL in the UK 2022. This year, hear how research discoveries can effectively be translated into impact. What lessons can we learn from previous ventures in order to maximise future collaborations?
Professor Jenny Woof has been named as one of this year’s winners of the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching.
Professor Woof commented “I am delighted and honoured to receive this award. I’m very aware that delivery of an excellent programme of teaching can only be achieved through strong teamwork, and I am very fortunate to work with colleagues across the Schools of Life Sciences and Medicine who are so committed to delivery of a first-rate student experience.”
Professor Alessio Ciulli has been awarded a European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology Awards 2022. He has been named the winner of the 2022 Prous Institute - Overton and Meyer Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery. This award has been in recognition of his “pioneering work in the field of proteolysis-targeting chimera (PROTAC) technology for drug-induced targeted protein degradation.
