Scientists at work: tackling India's snakebite problem

This article by Anita Malhotra, Senior lecturer in ecology and evolutionary genetics at the School of Biological Sciences was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. 

Gerry climbs up to the veranda of our tribal longhouse with a snake bag held out in front of him. “Now don’t get too excited, but I’ve just caught a Kaulbacki,” he says, looking pleased but exhausted from a long hike and a six-metre climb up a tree.

Final Year Biomedical Science Student Makes Break-Through Cancer Discovery

A long standing enigma in cancer biology is how the cell growth regulator Cdc2 can be active and inactive at the same time. Human cells stop dividing in the presence of genetic damage by inactivating Cdc2, but they also need active Cdc2 to remove the genomic defects.
