Congratulations to Dr Jonathon Nixon-Abell (Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow at CIMR with Prof. Peter St George Hyslop FRS) and Dr Georg Krainer (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow with Prof. Tuomas Knowles at the Department of Chemistry) who have jointly secured a Pump Priming Grant from the Cambridge Centre for Physical Biology. This annual funding scheme supports new collaborations between early career researchers with complementary expertise, thereby promoting multidisciplinary research in the field of physical biology in the University. Jonathan’s and Georg’s award will allow them to develop high-throughput methods of studying biomolecular condensates of protein and nucleic acid which can form inside cells – and which may have a role in neurodegenerative diseases.
