The first OptogeneticsAustralia Hands-on Workshop has been announced for 13-14 February 2020, here at ARMI!
In addition to talk and poster sessions, the program also includes exciting practical workshops! For more information about the schedule or registration and abstract submission, head over to https://optogeneticsaustralia.com/meeting/
Our most recent Review Article about light-activated GPCRs (OptoXRs), published in Current Opinion in Structural Biology, is now available!
In it, we discuss current OptoXR approaches, applications and limitations, but also how new insights gained from GPCR structures can be used for the design of next-generation OptoXRs and what opportunities lie in the use of them.
With the beginning of the new year, Sam joined our lab as a post-doctoral fellow!
Sam completed his PhD in the lab of Jean-Paul Vincent at the Francis Crick Institute in London, UK. During his PhD, Sam studied the role of EGFR signalling in early Drosophila development. You can read about his research here.
