MSc student Katherine Dunning has been selected as one of this year's American Society for Plant Biology Plantae Fellows. Below are some of the excellent paper summaries she has published in the Plant Science Research Weekly blog. Her summaries are great - check them out!
I was invited to give a Departmental Seminar at the ZMPB in Tuebingen, where I had the wonderful opportunity to visit with former Monaghan Lab member and Queen's alum Danalyn Holmes who is now there working on her PhD. I enjoyed meeting with friends and colleagues at the ZMPB and discussing our ongoing work on the regulation of cytoplasmic protein kinases. I then travelled to Freiburg for a few days to join the Plant Proteostasis meeting, where I presented our work on the immune-induced ubiquitome.
Thanks for the bretzels, weizen, and great science - Prost!
After the IS-MPMI meeting in Glasgow, I headed south to Norwich to meet with colleagues at the Sainsbury Lab, where I did my postdoctoral research from 2010-2015. Former MSc student Lauren Grubb is currently working at the affiliated John Innes Centre as a PhD student with Myriam Charpentier - it was fantastic to see that she is doing so well and enjoying living abroad. Norwich is a well-preserved medieval city with lots of old-world charm.
