MRC-PPU Alumni Interviews
The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit recruits the most driven, talented, creative researchers in the world. We provide them with an extraordinary research training experience as they help to decipher the biology of phosphorylation and ubiquitylation. The success of our alumni shows it works.
To celebrate the achievements of students and postdocs who trained at MRC PPU we have commissioned the “MRC-PPU Alumni Interviews”. In these interviews, with the science writer Hazel Lambert, our alumni share their insight and reflections on their time at MRC PPU, reveal what makes them tick and what they are doing now.
