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.
There is also an opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends over refreshments after Crick Lectures 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.
We're delighted to invitePrincipal Group leader and Assistant Research Director Victor Tybulewicz to give this week's Lecture - "Leaping into Water (Ion and Water Flux in T cell Migration and Activation)"
Victor runs the Immune Cell Biology Laboratory & Down Syndrome Laboratory here at the Crick which studies how immune cells develop and work, and they also look at how genetic changes cause different aspects of Down syndrome.
Victor obtained his BSc from Imperial College London and then studied for a PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, under the supervision of Dr John Walker, working on the ATP synthases of bacteria and mitochondria.
As a postdoctoral fellow at the Whitehead Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Professor Richard Mulligan he worked on methods to target mouse embryonic stem cells.
On returning to the UK in 1991 he set up a group at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) using mouse genetics to study signal transduction in lymphocytes, exploring the roles of signalling molecules in B and T cell development, activation, migration, adhesion and survival. Recent work includes studies of the SYK and WNK1 kinases and the BAFF receptor BAFFR. In 2015 his lab moved to the Francis Crick Institute.

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.
