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 Principal Group leader Veni Papayannopoulos giving the lecture "Taming the undertaker".
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.
Veni did his undergraduate studies at Rutgers University, working with Ken Irvine on the mechanisms that establish tissue barriers during Drosophila development.
He then moved to San Francisco to pursue a PhD with Wendell Lim at the University of California San Francisco, studying protein-lipid signaling in the regulation of actin dynamics.
For his post-doctoral work he joined the lab of Arturo Zychlinsky in Berlin to investigate the molecular mechanisms driving the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps before becoming a group leader at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research and later the Francis Crick Institute in 2012.

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
