Doctor of Phylosopy!

Huge congratulations to Dr Grobas for successfully completing his PhD! Iago made a lot of achievements during his PhD, including a research paper in eLife, a review paper in Biochemical Society Transactions, and several presentation awards!

Iago made the lab a spacial place. We awefully miss you!!

Iago has joined Oxford University.

Looking forward to learning about Iago's new exciting science!

Bacterial traffic jams, swarming and biofilm! New paper!!

A part of Iago's PhD project is now published in eLife. Huge congratulations, Iago!! It has been a fun and fruitful collaboration with Marco Polin(physics).

In this work, we investigated stress-induced transition from swarming to biofilm. We discovery a transition compatible with motility-induced phase separation underpins the initial stage of this transition.

And, here is a layman’s summary by eLife. Thanks to Emily Packer for writing this nice piece!
