one of the leading structural computational biologists of the younger generation.
Sarah Teichmann, research group leader at EMBL-EBI and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, has been recognised by the Biophysical Society for her outstanding contributions to biophysics. The Michael and Kate Bárány Award for Young Investigators recognises an outstanding contribution by a person who has not yet achieved the rank of full professor. Teichmann’s nomination listed her as “one of the leading structural computational biologists of the younger generation.”
Stephan Singer, a fellow within the framework of the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit, is a co-recipient of the 2014 Hella Bühler Prize. Awarded by the University of Heidelberg, the 150 000 euro prize recognises outstanding work by young scientists in the field of cancer research. Singer is currently working between the Medical Faculty of the University of Heidelberg and the Beck group at EMBL Heidelberg as part of a career development fellowship aimed at intensifying and broadening connections between the two institutes.
The nucleus of this cell fluoresces in bright green thanks to GFP-labelled nucleoporin proteins. EMBL scientists use engineered nucleoporins as 3D reference standards to improve super-resolution microscopy.
