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.
This week, we're delighted to invite Senior Group Leader and Assistant Research Director Sergi Garcia-Manyes to give the lecture - ‘Single protein mechanics insights into cellular mechanotransduction’
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 email@example.com so we can arrange access.
Sergi graduated in chemistry from the University of Barcelona (2000) and obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the same university, working on Scanning Probe Microscopy techniques.
He then moved to New York to conduct his postdoctoral training in the field of single molecule mechanics in the Biology Department of Columbia University with Julio Fernández.
In 2011 he moved to the UK, where he established his laboratory at King’s College London, in a joint appointment between the Department of Physics and the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics. In 2016 he was appointed Professor of Biophysics.
From 2017 he has been Head of the Biological Physics and Soft Matter research group in the Physics Department of King’s.
In 2019 he established a satellite laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute, together with Paula Booth (King’s Chemistry) and Justin Molloy (Crick). In 2020 he became a Crick Group Leader (secondment).
Sergi’s Single Molecule Mechanobiology Laboratory at the Crick aims to understand the molecular mechanisms that govern cellular mechanobiology.
Sergi held an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, and holds a Leverhulme Research Leadership Award and a Wellcome Trust Investigator Award. He is a Royal Society Wolfson Fellow.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
