SciArt Profiles: Sofia Araújo

Posted by on February 19th, 2021

In our fifth SciArt Profile we meet Sofia Araújo, a Professor in the University of Barcelona.   Where are you originally from, where do you work now, and what do you work on now? I am originally from Portugal. I took my Ph.D. in the UK and now, after a postdoc and a career development[…]

Postdoctoral Fellowship – Vitamin-Dependent Pathways in Neural Crest Development

Posted by on January 27th, 2021

The Poché Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate/fellow with experience in mouse developmental genetics and embryology. This NIH R01-funded position is focused on studying the interplay between nutritional factors, such as vitamins, and genetic and metabolic pathways essential for embryonic development. Special emphasis will be given to neural crest-derived tissues. Our long-term[…]

Postdoctoral Fellowship – Retinal Regeneration

Posted by on January 27th, 2021

The Poché Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate/fellow with experience in retinal developmental biology, tissue regeneration, or transcriptome analysis. This NIH R01-funded position is focused on the study of the molecular mechanisms blocking mammalian Müller glial cell (MG)-mediated retinal regeneration. Our long-term goal is to determine whether the mouse retina retains latent[…]

#DevBiolWriteClub, Post #3

Posted by on December 22nd, 2020

Welcome back to #DevBiolWriteClub.  Let’s review the rules: Do the work. Do the work. Revise and edit.  Again, and again, and again. Read with intent. You can’t do it alone. Last time, I hammered away at Rule #4, Read with Intent.  Today, I’ll return to Rule #4, and I’ll make some preliminary comments on Rule[…]

Establishing connections

Posted by on December 16th, 2020

By Jos Wendrich, Yvan Saeys and Bert De Rybel Nutrients such as phosphate are limiting in most soils. This has a great impact on crop yield in agriculture. Approaches to overcome these challenges often include using fertilizers, that in turn have a detrimental effect on the environment and our climate. Plants have developed adaptation mechanisms[…]

Mechanisms of synapse loss during neurodegeneration and ageing

Posted by on December 4th, 2020

https://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=127506 Exciting PhD project supervised by Dr Sanchez-Soriano and Dr Alison Twelvetrees through the MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership on mechanisms of synapse loss during neurodegeneration and ageing.   The aim of this studentship is to understand the processes of ageing and neurodegeneration, through the study of mechanisms of synaptic loss. You will be part[…]

Development through the pandemic

Posted by on December 2nd, 2020

With this strange and difficult year drawing to a close, I wanted to take the opportunity to update our community on how things have been going at Development through pandemic times. In March, the entire staff of The Company of Biologists decamped from the office and started home working. We’re incredibly lucky to have secure[…]
