ICR survey gives insight into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer research
The Institute of Cancer Research surveyed 239 of its researchers to gain insights into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their research, and to point to possible solutions. Read the results here.
New electron microscopy infrastructure
Exciting news: our new Glacios cryo-electron microscope has arrived and is being installed. The photo pictures Basil Greber, a new Team Leader in the Division of Structural Biology, with the microscope in its new home. A new era of Structural Biology at the ICR!
Welcome Saira, Ben and Giacomo!
In October, we welcomed three new PhD students to the lab: Saira, Ben and Giacomo! Exciting times!
Kick-starting the ICR: an interview with PhD student Iona Black
Iona Black, PhD student in the lab, has been interviewed as part of the #KickstartICR appeal. You can read the interview here. To learn more about how you can help ICR to kick-start research after lockdown, please visit the Kick-Start Appeal website.
Back to the lab …
We are back to the lab since June, with a rotation system to limit occupancy, but our research can go on. Our recent (socially distanced) lab picnic in the nearby Hyde Park was a nice summer treat.
Welcome Lucie, Paul and Matthew!
We recently welcomed three new team members: Lucie Vyletova and Paul Hopkins join us for some time as Higher Scientific Officers. Matthew Jessop started his postdoctoral research. Welcome Lucie, Paul and Matthew!
