A day in the life (second year PhD student and RA)

Hi, I am Tapan. I am in my second year of PhD and I also work as a research assistant here at KCL. I work in Simon Hughes’s lab and we are interested in understanding molecular mechanisms underlying embryonic muscle development, growth and regeneration.

A day in the life (2nd year PhD student)

Hello! I’m Gintare (Gin for short, and yes, I like gin…) and I’m a second year PhD student here at Randall. I work at Jim McDonnell’s lab and we’re curious how the molecules involved in the allergic response all work together. So I get to study both human proteins (a special class of antibodies, called IgEs) and allergens from pollen and use a bunch of biophysical techniques to see how they interact and how it leads to allergic response.

Good morning, London! Mornings are slow, but it’s always exciting to see where my experiments will take me today, so better get going!

Meet a biophysicist – Prof. Brian Sutton!

We continue to celebrate the Biophysics Week! In 2016, the Biophysics Society started an annual Biophysics Week to celebrate and raise the awareness of the field. Check out their website for more information and visit the British Biophysical Society page for the UK based biophysics news!

Here at the Randall Centre for Cell & Molecular Biophysics, we have many top-notch biophysicists doing amazing research. To shed some light on the biophysics research done at our department, we’ve asked group leaders to share what they do and what got them into this exciting field! Check out what Prof. Brian Sutton has to say about biophysics!

Meet a biophysicist – Dr. Susan Cox!

It’s Biophysics Week! If the term ‘biophysics’ gets your head scratching, don’t worry – it is very likely you haven’t heard much about it because it’s a relatively new field. As a scientific discipline, biophysics began in the middle of the twentieth century, which is only about sixty years ago! In 1958, the Biophysics Society was founded to encourage the development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. In 2016, the Biophysics Society started an annual Biophysics Week to celebrate and raise the awareness of the field.
