Carlos Ibanez starts new laboratory at the Life Sciences Institute of the National University of Singapore

Starting in the Fall of 2012, a new laboratory dedicated to neurotrophic factor research will be established at the Life Sciences Institute (Neurobiology Programme) of the National University of Singapore. The research actitivies of the NUS lab will run in parallel to and complement with those ongoing at the KI lab. The initial focus of the NUS group will be on genetic studies of death receptor signaling and physiology, as well as the identification of novel, mechanism-based receptor inhibitors. Follow developments in the NUS lab at carlosibanezlab.se/NUS.

Sabbatical in Singapore

Carlos Ibanez and Annalena Moliner are heading to Singapore on December 18 for a 5-month sabbatical until May 2011. They will be hosted by Dr. Bing Lim of the Genome Institute of Singapore and Dr. Sai Kiang Lim of the Institute of Medical Biology, located at the Biopolis campus run by theĀ Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore’s lead government agency dedicated to fostering world-class scientific research. They will be working on several of our ongoing collaborative projects with these groups, applying advanced functional genomics and stem cell biology methods to study pancreatic islet development and function in cells and tissue derived from mouse mutants generated at the laboratory.
