HiLIFE Webinar: Katja Röper

​Mechanisms and mechanics of tube morphogenesis
Katja Röper gained a degree in Biochemistry in Berlin before embarking on a PhD in Cell Biology at the University of Heidelberg, studying apical protein trafficking and asymmetric cell division in the mouse neuroepithelium. She then moved to Cambridge, UK, to learn flies as a model system and has remained a Drosophilist ever since. Her lab at the MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK studies the dynamic behaviour of epithelial tissues during organ morphogenesis, in particular the formation of tubular organs, with the main model process being the formation of the salivary glands in the fly embryo. The research focuses on the regulation of cell shape by the cytoskeleton and coordination of events at the molecular, cellular and tissue scale, using a combination of fly genetics, biochemistry as well as advanced imaging approaches paired with quantitative analyses. Recently, her lab has begun to use human renal organoids derived from iPSCs as a second developmental tubulogenesis model.

Engineering humans - Afternoon in The Science Basement

The Afternoon in the Science Basement seminar series collaborates with the Year of Research-Based Knowledge 2021 project led by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, the Academy of Finland, and the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. Please use their handles on social media when discussing our event. (Twitter/FB/Insta) @tttv2021

Would you like to know what young scientists are up to, and how their research may pertain to you? Would you like to stay up-to-date with the latest scientific advancements? Do you enjoy learning new things?

Whether you have a scientific background or not, if you have answered yes to any of the above questions then this email is for YOU!

The Science Basement would like to invite you to listen and interact during an Afternoon in the Science Basement. The next speaker of the monthly spring series, Sami Jalil, from the University of Helsinki will present their work, ‘Engineering humans: the future of gene editing’.
“Gene editing technologies have exponentially evolved during the last decade. For the first time in history, humans have the power to redesign their own genome and genetically alter any other species. Such immense power comes with a great responsibility. What could we do as a society to benefit from these technologies while minimizing the risks? How could we participate in the decision-making process?”
