  • Vietri, Radulovic and Stenmark with Nature Review about ESCRT proteins in membrane dynamics Nov. 11, 2019 9:28 AM

    In a recent issue of Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology, Marina Vietri, Maja Radulovic and Harald Stenmark at CanCell review the many functions of a protein machinery specialized for membrane scission and sealing.

  • New article in Current Biology by Lie-Jensen and Haglund Oct. 22, 2019 10:34 AM

    Their Report " Centralspindlin Recruits ALIX to the Midbody during Cytokinetic Abscission in Drosophila via a Mechanism Analogous to Virus Budding" uncovers parallels between ALIX recruitment during cytokinetic abscission in flies and virus budding in human cells and investigates the fine-tuned process involved in abscission, demonstrating that the centralspindlin complex emerges to play an ancestral role in recruiting the abscission machinery to the midbody

  • uio-forskningsdagene-2019 The Secrets of the Cells Sep. 19, 2019 12:15 PM

    Ragnhild Eskeland from CanCell will take part in a popular science seminar coined "The Secrets of the Cells" in conjunction with "Science Days" at the University today (19/9, Litteraturhuset a 17.00), where she will present research on epigenetics and discuss why this gives us vital information about who we are, and what this may be used for. CanCell associate member Philippe Collas will also be presenting.

    If you want to attend there is still a few spaces available, please sign up here.

    A graphic introduction to epigenetics can be viewed here (facebook).

    For those of you that did not make it yesterday, there is a link to the seminar video here
