Academic Visit to Oxford University : Thanks to Development Travelling Fellowship
Posted by Mahim Misra, on 17 December 2012
I am a second year graduate student in Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Princeton University. I got a chance to visit Center for Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford this November. I would like to thank Company of Biologist’s Traveling Fellowships program and people behind it for supporting me. It was an amazing and enriching visit. We ( Prof. Stanislav Shvartsman’s Lab) work on Drosophila (fruit fly) Oogenesis and Embryogenesis. The focus of this trip was discussing the modelling aspect of Epithelial morphogenesis specifically formation of respiratory appendages during Drosophila Oogenesis. Discussions were very fruitful and we came up with some good ideas. I am currently working on them. I will share with all of you more about the work ,once this project comes to its logical conclusion of a research article.
Once again I would like to thank Company of Biologist for the Traveling Fellowship.
