Our research spans from biophysical mechanism to molecular behaviour in organisms to discover how proteins and lipids control rearrangements of the actin cytoskeleton.


  • April 2019:

    Uli gives a seminar talk at Virginia Tech in the US and an invited talk at the British Applied Maths Colloquium in Bath.

  • March 2019:

    Pantelis goes to the Advanced Optical Microscopy course at the Plymouth Marine Biological Association.

  • January 2019:

    Our newest manuscript on actin dynamics and the variable composition of actin regulatory proteins is up on the bioRxiv.

    Jenny enjoyed participating in a Company of Biologists workshop on reconstituting the cell cytoskeleton, giving a talk and interacting with colleagues.

    We are lucky to have two excellent Part II students from the Department of Biochemistry join us for their eight week projects.

  • December 2018:

    We bid farewell to Bish who moves on to a new PostDoc position at the Crick Institute! Good luck with her future endeavours!

  • November 2018:

    We say goodbye to Hanae who successfully defended her thesis and starts a PostDoc position at the Salk Institute. We wish her all the Best!

  • October 2018:

    Grant success: Jonathan has translational funding!
