Prof Andrew Goryachev awarded BBSRC-NSF/BIO grant in synthetic biology
Andrew Goryachev, Professor of Computational Cell Biology and SynthSys PI has been awarded a prestigious BBSRC - US National Science Foundation Directorate of Biological Sciences (NSF/BIO) grant in synthetic biology.
A half-a-million pound award will fund the UK part of the collaboration with the US partner, Prof. W. Bement, University of Wisconsin-Madison, to work on the control of cellular pattern formation in the synthetically rewired frog oocytes.
This long-term collaboration had already attracted BBSRC-NSF/BIO funding during the earlier call 2016-2021. This new award is recognition of the success of the collaboration that established a new experimental paradigm of cytoskeletal pattern formation in cells of higher eukaryotes.
