The people behind the papers – Roman Szabo and Thomas Bugge

Posted by on January 29th, 2020

This interview, the 74th in our series, was recently published in Development.  Dysregulated activity of cell surface proteolytic enzymes has a wide range of developmental and pathological consequences, but the underlying mechanisms are often poorly understood. A new Development paper uses mice to model a severe inherited form of enteropathy and the role of the serine protease matriptase[…]

BSDB Gurdon/The Company of Biologists 2019 Summer Studentship Report – Nivetha Manobharath

Posted by on January 20th, 2020

Established by the British Society for Developmental Biology in 2014, The Gurdon/The Company of Biologists Summer Studentship scheme provides financial support to allow highly motivated undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in practical research during their summer vacation. Each year, ten successful applicants spend eight weeks in the research laboratories of their choices, and the feedback[…]

The people behind the papers – Ding Li and Jianbo Wang

This interview, the 72nd in our series, was recently published in Development.  Heart development in mammals is a beautifully complex process. Patterning, proliferation and differentiation are all coordinated with cell movements and tissue morphogenesis (for instance elongation, fusion, folding, looping). However, our knowledge of the molecular regulators of heart development currently outstrips what we know about the[…]

Secret talk between epithelium and endothelium determines hair follicle stem cell fate

Posted by on November 6th, 2019

By Kefei Nina Li and Prachi Jain   Stem cells are typically defined by their ability to self-renew and differentiate. These activities are tightly controlled by both intrinsic cues and extrinsic cues from the microenvironment, known as the SC niche. This niche consists of multiple components, among which blood vessels (BVs) are critical as they[…]

Postdoctoral position in Quantitative Live Imaging of Cell Fate Choice and Organization

Posted by on October 16th, 2019

The Posfai Lab at Princeton University (www.Posfailab.org) is looking to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell fate choice and emergent organization during early embryonic development, using the preimplantation mouse embryo as a model system. The project will combine genetic engineering and quantitative, high-resolution live imaging using[…]

Posted by on August 13th, 2019

This interview, the 67th in our series, was recently published in Development Most bones in the vertebrate skeleton are made in the same way – endochondrial ossification – yet they display a variety of shapes and sizes. The question of how these unique bone morphologies, including the superstructures that protrude from their surfaces, arise during development is[…]

POSTDOC IN DEVELOPMENTAL METABOLISM (Francis Crick Institute, London)

Posted by on July 12th, 2019

Roles of metabolism in the developmental origins of health and longevity A postdoctoral research position funded by the Wellcome Trust is available in the laboratory of Dr. Alex Gould at the Francis Crick Institute in London. The lab works on the mechanisms by which dietary nutrients during development can have profound long-term effects upon adult[…]

This interview, the 62nd in our series, was recently published in Development Vascular development critically involves pruning, which helps to remodel an immature network containing excess microvessels into a mature and functioning one. The mechanisms of vascular remodelling and the relationship between the endothelial cells and the other cell types with which they are closely associated are,[…]
