Our Dynamic Molecular Cell Biology students
Our current students are investigating a large range of scientific questions within the field of dynamic molecular cell biology. Beneath are a selection from each of the year cohorts (most recent intake at the top) and the projects that they are undertaking. Beneath them, in black and white, are some of our ex-students, and where they have moved on to.

By now we have several years of alumni; below are a selection of our ex-students and where they have moved on to. All of these antique black and white photos were taken by Will Razzell, another previous student of the Dynamic Cell Biology programme.
Dysfunctional mitochondria and novel protein involvement in mitophagy with Jon Lane (2009-2013) - he was awarded a prestigous EMBO fellowship to postdoc with Thomas Langer in Cologne.
Temporal and spatial dynamics of IL-10 expression in a peripheral tolerance model of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE) with David Wraith (2009-2014) - helped set up our "Careers outside Academia" workshops, and is now a trainee patent lawyer.
Role of trafficking complex retromer in regulating the formation of Wnt morphogenic gradients with Pete Cullen (2008-2012) - now postdocing with JP Vincent at the Crick and looking to set up his own lab soon.
Nutrient sensitive transcriptomes in the Paraventricular Hypothalamus: Dynamic regulation and downstream physiology with Nina Balthasar (2009-2013) - she is now a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cambridge Institute of Metabolic Science.
Signalling mechanisms involved in prostate cancer cell migration following cell-cell collisions with Kate Nobes (2009-2014) - now Principal Scientist at Exonate Ltd, Nottingham.
Investigating the molecular mechanisms that underlie learning and memory with James Hodge (2008-2012) - he undertook an internship at The Academy of Medical Sciences which convinced him that he wanted to be a clinician scientist. Currently undertaking his F2 training in glamorous Southend.
