Our PI Dr Isaacs is giving a lecture at University of Edinburgh on 26th of September 2017 as part of UE Neuroscience Seminar. The talk is titled “C9orf72 FTD and ALS – Mechanisms and therapeutics” and will be given at Lecture Theatre A, Chancellors Building, 13:00.
Our lab head Dr Adrian Isaacs will be giving a talk on our C9orf72 work at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in London in July
Our news and views article on the development of new biomarkers for C9orf72 FTD/ALS is now out in EMBO Molecular Medicine.
Our PhD student Jack Humphrey reported that TDP-43 but not FUS affects cryptic splicing. Read it here at BMC Genomics.
Our third year PhD student Thomas Moens recently published a review on genetic models of C9orf72FTD/ALS. Read it here.
Our latest publication is now out on Acta Neuropathologica Communications. Bidirectional nucleolar dysfunction in C9orf72 frontotemporal lobar degeneration
We are hiring for a full-time technician position. You will be based in IHA in the Drosophila lab working with experienced and enthusiastic postdocs on the role of C9orf72 in ALS Drosophila model. More info here.
We welcome two new postdocs Bhavana Muralidharan and Magda Atilano into our lab.
Our PhD student Rubika presented at the Fifth Annual Postgraduate Research Symposium hosted by the UCL Faculty of Brain Sciences and was awarded the first prize for the 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. She will now go forwards to represent the Faculty of Brain Sciences at the UCL 3MT competition.
