Louise Walport, group leader at the Crick and fellow RaPID aficionado visits Copenhagen. Nice brunch with the group.
Rogers lab Christmas party. All the Danish festive foods.
Group dinner to welcome the new students and visiting scholars to the lab. Interesting Thai food in Christiania, an interesting place.
Masters students Irene Olivas-Cano and Iben Jensen join the lab and start 'bootcamp'. Welcome!
CBP Annual retreat. Superb workshop on creativity, by Itai Yanai and Martin Lercher of the 'Night science' podcast. Warm-up exercise was an engineering task of the sort where children often outpreform adults. Mine and Fabian's tower was pretty good, draw your own conclusions.
Lab summer activity: boating around Copenhagen harbour. Some surprise Danish weather, but mostly nice and sunny.
Paper on N-methylated cyclic peptides for Lys48-ubiquitin chains now out in the April issue of RSC Chem Biol, alongside two (!) papers from our neighbours in the Olsen lab.
New paper featuring deep mutational scanning of a cyclic peptide. Structure-activity relationship of ipglycermide binding to phosphoglycerate mutases.
New PhD student Janina 'Nina' Dahmen joins. Just in time for 2020, well done Nina.
One of the last Joe-in-Suga-lab publications, and it's a good one: new cyclic peptides with function in animals. In vivo modulation of ubiquitin chains by N-methylated non-proteinogenic cyclic peptides
New PhD student Fabian Hink joins. Glad to have you on board Fabian.
Joe can't walk up the stairs.
Inaugural Center for Biopharmaceuticals (CBP) triathlon, along the Amager coast.
Center for Biopharmaceuticals (CBP) Masters student's presentations and BBQ. Promising science, tasty food and Danish summer games.
First Rogers lab review and first publication proudly stamped "University of Copenhagen". Peptide Folding and Binding Probed by Systematic Non-canonical Mutagenesis
Joe's first day at ILF and in the new lab space. There's plenty of work to do.
Joe lands in Copenhagen and begins quarantine. Denmark and ILF is in covid lockdown, but prep for the lab (i.e. shopping) starts thanks to Janne and Heidi.
