March 2, 2021

The Cell Cycle Club provides a venue for labs working in fundamental cell cycle research in model organisms to interact with those using mammalian cells to drive research in a more ‘translational’ direction.

The meeting in March welcomes Sir Professor Paul Nurse from The Francis Crick Institute (London, UK) and recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

Rob de Bruin (University College London)
John Diffley (The Francis Crick Institute)
Peter Thorpe (Queen Mary University London)
