This month’s RNA Society Spotlight features Jailson Brito Querido, a postdoctoral researcher in Venki Ramakrishnan’s group. Jailson describes how he became interested in RNA biology, why he wanted to come to the LMB, and who his scientific hero is. More…
RNA Society Spotlight on LMB postdoc Jailson Brito Querido
Julian Gough has been named the Cambridge Enterprise Academic Entrepreneur of the Year for his work with Mogrify.
John Briggs’ group has uncovered the atomic structure of M1 matrix proteins, and their ordered arrangement within the influenza A virus, suggesting mechanisms for two critical processes in the infection cycle.
Venki Ramakrishnan’s group has solved the structure of the protein complex formed when mRNA is being scanned to find the start codon, providing new understanding of the molecular mechanisms underpinning initiation of translation.
From modest beginnings Sydney became an extraordinarily influential and accomplished molecular biologist. His critical knowledge of, and insights into, key scientific problems were legendary. His irrepressible personality, acerbic wit and ebullient talks inspired a generation of young biologists. He made seminal discoveries in how genetic information is used for protein synthesis, and established Caenorhabditis elegans […]
A team led by Radu Aricescu’s group created a synthetic compound that acts like a ‘bridge’ where connections have been lost due to damage or illness, offering hope of new therapies for a range of devastating conditions, from Alzheimer’s disease to epilepsy. More…
