Faculty Thesis Prize!!

Iago Grobas won the WMS Faculty Thesis Award for his thesis “Biophysical mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in swarming B. subtilis“. A part of this thesis has been publishe in eLife.

The project was co-supervised with Dr Marco Polin. We had great time explore biophysics of bacterial corrective dynamics!!

Iago is currently a postdoc at Oxford University.

Huge congratulations!! Well deserved, Iago!

Bioelectricity: Chronicling a Buzzing Biomedical Field

Tailise's review "Seeking Insights into Aging Through Yeast Mitochondrial Electrophysiology" has been featured, along with the colleagues in this exciting feild, in GEN NEWS.

It's a very nice article highlighting the potential of bioelectricity in biomedical field.

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!
