    From Rye to Camber Sands. We walked, got slightly lost, went for a quick paddle in the sea, walked again, then pub!

  • ERC success


    We have been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant to explore sex differences in intestinal physiology. Thanks to ERC for its continued support, and looking forward to the next five years of scientific freedom!

    Lab's reaction to the news...


  • Ret in fly guts... and mouse organoids


    Our first fly + mouse paper is out in EMBO J. Unexpected roles for the Ret neurotrophic receptor outside neurons, in the intestinal epithelium. Great team effort in the lab and nice collaboration with Kim Jensen's lab. Thanks to Judith Eisen for her F1000Prime recommendation.
