Julie did her PhD in Structural Biology of the regulation of cell cycle complexes in the LMB, University of Oxford with Prof Jane Endicott and Prof Martin Noble. She spent one year in Eva Nogales's laboratory at UC Berkeley to further study mitotic protein complexes by electron microscopy. She joined the Cheeseman lab, at the Whitehead Institute and MIT, Boston, in 2008 to pursue cell biology and biochemical studies on mitosis. Julie moved in April 2012 to the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, Edinburgh to start the lab and continues to work on cell division. She is also uncovering mechanisms of molecular transport.
Rockin' Research assistant
Agata did her PhD with Hiro Okhura. She is interested in how kinesin proteins regulate microtubules and spindles in vitro and in vivo.
Big come back of Thibault as a Research Assistant/PhD student
Thibault did an Erasmus internship in our lab two years ago and decided to come back as a research assistant doing a PhD. Thibault is solving the mystery of how the Dam1 complex is assembled and binds to microtubules
Toni did her PhD at the Centre for Mechanochemical cell biology at the University of Warwick with Prof Rob Cross. She is working on the mechanism of kinesin depolymerases.
