Today Michał Komorowski from IPPT PAN in Warsaw will talk about making sense of cellular signaling complexity within the series of Interdisciplinary Seminars: Enigmas of Chance. We invite to join us stationary in seminar room D-2-43 or on-line via MS Teams. The talk starts at 12:00.
We open call for PhDs interested in systems biology. The project goal is to identify regulatory mechanisms that affect patterning precision in the developing spinal cord. Details can be found at: https://zagorskigroup.com/open-positions/. If you are interested please contact me in advance. We wait for your application till 30th May!
In SONATA BIS call from 2021, 12 out of total 44 funded projects will be realized at Jagiellonian University (results). In our group openings for both postdocs and PhD students are planned in the following months!
In the recent preprint together with collaborators from IST Austria we uncover how epithelial fluidity, interkinetic movements and cell cycle dynamics affect the precision of pattern formation in the developing spinal cord. Available at: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.01.20.477048v1
Maciej Kania will start the Erasmus+ Internship in the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. He will work under supervision of prof. Tim Vogels, head of neurocomputational lab in the subject of synaptic plasticity, network dynamics and single-neuron biophysics. Traineeship will last 2 months from February to April 2022. Congratulations to Maciej!
Tomorrow I’ll give a talk about how pattering precision is achieved in developing tissues at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw. It will be streamed on zoom and it is open to everyone. The link to the talk can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/events/438862617637542?ref=newsfeed
Over the weekend Tomek attended “Aspects of Neuroscience” 10th edition in Warsaw. It was a mixture of on-site and online talks by both well-established and early stage researchers. More details at https://www.aspectsofneuro.com/.
It was my great pleasure to give popular science talk on connection between development of multicellular systems and GPS navigation. The talk was aimed for high school students and took place in October. It is now available on-line at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Cwk8W0wi6I&t=67s
We went for half-day trip to Ojców National Park. We experienced sunny Polish autumn and had plenty of scientific discussions. We got back to our desks with a lot of new energy!
The 34th Marian Smoluchowski Symposium on Statistical Physics came to an end with plenty of great talks. On Wednesday Maciej presented his research on mechanics of domain formation with analytical insights on spatial and temporal aspects of domain stability. Maciej’s talk was followed by Richard discussing how robustness and precision is achieved in the developing spinal cord by exploring system level-feedback between source and target tissue. We are looking forward to the next edition of Smoluchowski conference!
