Klose Lab News

Dr Paula Dobrinic joins the lab!

Welcome to Paula, who is joining us from Vlatka Zoldos’s lab at the University of Zagreb, Croatia. She will be investigating how CpG islands contribute to gene regulation.

Conference – 40th FEBS Congress

Vincenzo recently won a travel grant to attendĀ the 15th FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum, joined with the 40th FEBS Congress in Berlin, where he was given the opportunity to present his work. Well done to Vincenzo!

Conference – Oxford Transcription Meeting 2015

Rob and other lab members attended the inaugural Oxford Transcription Meeting, at the Oxford Martin School here in Oxford. The meeting brought together groups studying chromatin and transcription from different deparments within the university.

Angelika is awarded EMBO Fellowship

Congratulations to Angelika for being awarded an EMBO fellowship to pursue her work in the lab. Her award is to investigate the different regulatory inputs for different classes of vertebrate gene promoters.

Well done Angelika!

Anca wins top CRUK Prize

Anca Farcas, former DPhil student in the lab, is the joint winner of Cancer Research UK (CRUK) 2014 Pontecorvo Prize.

The prize is awared to the CRUK-funded student who produced the best PhD thesis and made the most outstanding contribution to scientific knowledge in their field of research.

This a great recognition of all of Anca’s hard work in the lab. Congratulations Anca!

Klose Lab Retreat 2015 – Niederau, Austria

The Klose lab has returned safely from another highly successful lab retreat. Based in the small Austrian village Niederau, the retreat proved to be stimulating scientifically and socially within the lab. When the lab wasn’t discussing science, we made the most of the fantastic weather and spent time enjoying the fantastic mountain scenery (and the ski slopes!).

Dr Angelika Feldmann joined the lab!

Angelika is joining us from Dirk Schubeler’s lab at the FMI, Basel. She will be focusing on the mechanisms by which different promoter classes coordinate their regulatory inputs in vertebrates.

Conferences – EMBO Transcription and Chromatin, and CSHL Epigenetics and Chromatin

Lab members attended two conferences recently.

Hamish attended the EMBO Transcription and Chromatin conference in Heidelberg, Germany, where he presented a poster.

Rob and Neil also attended the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Epigenetics and Chromatin conference in the US, where Rob presented the latest work from the lab on polycomb recruitment.
