The CrickConnect team are delighted to be able to invite community members to join us for the institute's regular Crick Lecture.
Crick Lectures provide a broad insight into biomedical research from leading scientists. Not to be missed, the one-hour lectures are the event of the week for the Crick community to come together. The lectures aim to be accessible to scientists across different disciplines, while also offering something for the specialist.
We're delighted to invite Professor Alpha Yap from the University of Queensland Australia to give the first Crick Lecture of 2024 - "Forces in life: mechanotransduction and tissue homeostasis"
There will also be an opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends over refreshments after the Lecture from 17:00. If you are able to join us in person at the Crick please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange access.
Alpha Yap is an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow. He and his lab seek to understand tissue mechanobiology: how mechanical forces control the behaviour of complex, multicellular tissues in health in disease. Their recent work focuses on characterising the cellular mechanisms that mediate mechanical homeostasis in epithelia, and testing how these support homeostasis against cell death and transformation.
They’ve been helped in this endeavour by the generous support of developmental biologists, physicists, engineers and clinicians. Alpha has led international conferences and the Australia and New Zealand Society for Cell Biology; serves as editor for several international journals; was Division Head at the University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience; and is a Lifetime Fellow of the American Society for Cell Biology. His spare time is occupied by a quixotic attempt to play the piano.

Due to the pioneering and sensitive nature of some of the research discussed in these lectures, only Crick Lectures from selected speakers will be shared, and we ask all attendees to respect the private nature of these talks by refraining from making any type of recording, sharing access details or in any other way compromising the research that is discussed.
If you'd like to attend in person please let us know at email@example.com
