Past Members

Marketa Novotna – Wellcome Trust PhD Student

Marketa did her third rotation and she optimised expression of recombinant proteins.

Sam Taylor – MRC DTP Rotation PhD Student

Sam focused on identifying and characterising specific phosphorylation events & their role during oocyte meiosis.

Conchita Fraguas Bringas – Honours Student

 Conchita will focus her project on understanding how sumoylation and phosphorylation hold together protein complexes involved in Meiosis I.

Andrea Princz – EMBO short-term Fellow (Tavernarakis Lab)

Andrea spent two months in the lab working on SUMO modification of proteins involved in ageing and stress in C. elegans.

Carmen Espejo Serrano – Wellcome Trust PhD Student (Rotation)

Carmen spent three months in the lab working on the mechanisms of action of the SUMO E3 ligase GEI-17.

Conchita Fraguas Bringas – Summer Student (funded by Medical Research Scotland) 

Conchita characterised the localisation of SUMO proteases during meiosis and mitosis in C. elegans.
