05.10.15  Poster prizes at the Gurdon Institute retreat, 1-2 October 2015

Abhijit Das

The poster session is one of the busiest and most popular activities at the Gurdon Institute's annual retreat, held every October to introduce new students and recruits to our full range of research and researchers. A competition for the best poster is judged by several group leaders and senior guests at the event.

This year the first prize was split between two top entries:

Abhijit Das (Brand lab), who shows that chromatin modification blocks dedifferentiation of neurons to prevent tumour initiation; and

Hanae Shimo (Gallop lab) with a poster on resolving nanoscale organisation of filopodia-like structure assembly factors on membranes.

Second prize went to:

Vitor Trovisco (St Johnston lab), for his poster describing research on the mechanisms of transport and anchoring of bcd mRNA in Drosophila.

Studying development to understand disease

The Gurdon Institute is funded by Wellcome and Cancer Research UK to study the biology of development, and how normal growth and maintenance go wrong in cancer and other diseases.
