Interview with the 2022 Hooke medal winner Jeremy Carlton


Jeremy Carlton studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University and then joined the lab of Pete Cullen for his PhD at the University of Bristol to work on membrane trafficking pathways regulated by the phosphoinositide-binding family of sorting nexins. He then moved to Juan Martin-Serrano's lab for a postdoc at the Department of Infectious Diseases at King's College London as a Beit Memorial Research Fellow. There, while setting out to study how the ESCRT machinery is hijacked by HIV-1 during viral budding, he discovered a key role for ESCRT proteins in the final stage of cell division. Jeremy set up his independent research group in 2012 at the Division of Cancer Studies, King's College London, as a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellow. He is now a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow and his lab, currently seconded to the Francis Crick Institute, investigates membrane and organelle remodelling during cell division. We have previously interviewed Jeremy (doi:10.1242/jcs.242982) in this series and now caught up with him again after he was awarded the Hooke Medal by the British Society for Cell Biology (BSCB).
