Talks from Gems Lab at International C. elegans Meeting

Dr Marina Ezcurra and Dr Alex Benedetto were both selected to speak at the recent International C. elegans Meeting in Los Angeles (June 24th-28th). The two talks described new breakthroughs in understanding the mechanisms by which age-related pathologies originate in C. elegans, and generated considerable interest. Alex also described a new stress-resistance assay based on death fluorescence, recently discovered in the Gems lab.

Congratulations to Dr Nuria Vergara

27 November 2012

Our congratulations go to Dr Nuria Vergara (Schuster Lab) who has been awarded a Postdoctoral Mobility Award to work at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) in the laboratory of Prof. Gabriel Aeppli.

For three months she will be learning how to do microfluidics in order to make a device for high-throughput studies in C. elegans. 

This award complements the ongoing collaboration between Dr. Eugene Schuster and Dr. David Holmes at LCN. They have recently been awarded a PhD studentship from EPSRC to perform lifespan studies inC. elegans using microfluidic devices.
