Talk Title: "Leaping into Water (Ion and Water Flux in T cell Migration and Activation)"
Victor runs the Immune Cell Biology Laboratory & Down Syndrome Laboratory at the Crick.
Victor Tybulewicz obtained his BSc from Imperial College London and then studied for a PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, under the supervision of Dr John Walker, working on the ATP synthases of bacteria and mitochondria.
As a postdoctoral fellow at the Whitehead Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Professor Richard Mulligan, he worked on methods to target mouse embryonic stem cells.
On returning to the UK in 1991 he set up a group at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) using mouse genetics to study signal transduction in lymphocytes, exploring the roles of signalling molecules in B and T cell development, activation, migration, adhesion and survival. Recent work includes studies of the SYK and WNK1 kinases and the BAFF receptor BAFFR. In 2015 his lab moved to the Francis Crick Institute.
