Tim started running his group at Durham in January 2020 and has worked on cell division since his PhD. He never gets bored of watching cells divide or talking over coffee.
Ed did a BA in biology at the University of Oxford, and an MSc in molecular biology at the University of Sussex, working on primase-polymerases. He then worked as a research assistant at MRC Harwell, generating and validating genetically engineered mice. He now focuses on how cytokinesis varies between cells in C. elegans.
For her MBiol project, Jade worked introduced mammalian tissue culture to the lab, to study cell division in this (new to us) system.
Becca has been studying for her MBiol in the lab, looking at the dynamics of temperature-sensitive Myosin II.
Undergraduate project student
Sam has worked in the lab as a summer student and for his undergrad research project. He investigates contractile ring dynamics, and helps Tim with Python scripts.
MBiol student (2021)
Isabel was the second member of the lab, completing her MBiol on germline regulation of cell divsion. She has continued to do a PhD in Professor Ehmke Pohl's lab at Durham.
Undergrad summer student (2021)
Robert looked at polarity in the early embryo on a Genetics Society summer studentship.
