We have just been awarded over 2 million PLN from National Science Centre in the OPUS 14 contest! Time to grow our team and work on exciting new directions. The work that was funded is on the regulation of the activity of Gli proteins by the ubiquitin-proteasome system in normal cells and in cancer. Congrats to the whole lab who contributed to the effort and also to other labs from CeNT who got grants in this edition. As is our custom, we celebrated with champagne and strawberries 😉
LMCS has two new lab members! Tomek, who did his internship with us for a few months, has officially joined the lab as a graduate student, and Kasia came as a postdoctoral fellow. Both have experience working in biomedical labs in Poland and abroad (France, Sweden, Qatar). Check out their profiles on the People page. Welcome!
Krzysztof Bernadzki from the Proszynski lab is the lead author on a new paper that we collaborated on with the Proszynski lab. The paper was just published in Scientific Reports – this is really exciting news. Congrats to all the coauthors and thanks to Tomek for the opportunity to contribute to the work!
We went to see Ghost in the Shell as a lab last night. The movie was rather shallow, but visually stunning. Afterwards, we went bar-hopping to celebrate Łukasz’s new-born, Miłosz. Congrats, Łukasz! We were very disappointed that our favorite bar “U Mechaników” closed up, but we have a new go-to place – “Do Dna”.
