Claudia Manzoni in the lab has just had a review article published in Biochemical Society Transactions, a follow up from the LRRK2 to meeting that myself, Elisa Greggio and Kirsten Harvey organised last year. An excellent summary of some of the latest thinking on what LRRK2 is doing in the cell.

All this week I am attending the Keystone symposium on Autophagy, should be a fascinating meeting on the latest research in this interesting area of biology – and one that the group is particularly interested in with regard to Parkinson’s disease.
James Tomkins, BBSRC PhD student in the group, presented a poster last week at the Keystone meeting on Omics Strategies to Study the Proteome held at the Breckenridge resort in Colorado, which by all accounts was a fascinating meeting. More from the Keystone symposia series imminently..
I spent yesterday afternoon at Highdown School in Caversham, talking to a group of year 12 and year 13 pupils about a career in biomedicine and some of the latest research into Parkinson’s disease. Very enjoyable chatting to the students, who (as is often the case) came out with some very interesting, and probing, questions.
