Congratulations to our very talented and soon to be ex-PhD student Lygie Esquirol, who has just handed in her corrected thesis. Great work Lygie - and a very well deserved outcome after all of your hard work and dedication.
Lygie has had a hugely successful three and a bit years with us: she has helped produce five new protein structures (four published, one still to come), revised (i.e., corrected) a well established metabolic pathway, discovered two new enzyme activities (waiting for the new Enzyme Commission numbers now), and had three high impact papers published (with at least two more to come). Oh, and she also had a baby!
Unfortunately for us, Lygie has accepted a post-doc position with Frank Sainsbury at the AIBN in Brisbane, where I'm sure she'll continue to excel!
