I did a 3 month project in the Royle lab, working with Nick on tags for CLEM.
Next | PhD in Birmingham.
Anika Patel | Research Assistant
I helped lots of projects in the lab, doing gene editing and make cell lines. Before coming here I did a Masters at Birmingham.
Next | Toxicology work for CRO.
Joseph Dunford | Masters student
My project was on developing new tagging technologies for CLEM.
Next | PhD with Andy Blanks, Warwick.
Laura Wood | IAS-MRC DTP Fellow
I made a synthetic system for triggering endocytosis in human cells. I did my PhD in the Royle lab and then stayed on for a short postdoc.
Next | Post-doc, Bath, UK.
Cristina Gutiérrez Caballero | Postdoc
I worked on the role of microtubule crosslinkers in the stability of mitotic spindles and kinetochore fibres in particular.
Next | Exonate, Nottingham, UK.
Sourav Sarkar | Postdoc
I worked on FGFR3-TACC3 fusions in bladder cancer cells and the effect of this fusion on chromosome segregation.
Next | AstraZeneca, Cambridge, UK.
Aditi Kibe | Research Assistant
I helped generate tagged cell lines using CRISPR/Cas9 as well as keeping the lab running.
Next | PhD on MIBTP programme.
Georgina Starling | Research Assistant
I used 3View and 3D rendering to look at mitotic spindles at high resolution.
Next | PhD in Sheffield with Jason King.
Faye Nixon | PhD Student
I used 3D EM to characterise the mesh in kinetochore fibres of the mitotic spindle.

Rachel Jones | Research Assistant
I supported people in the lab working on mitotic spindle stability.
Next | PhD with Grant Stewart, Birmingham.
Satdip Kaur | Postdoc
I worked on the regulation of clathrin-mediated endocytosis during mitosis and on moonlighting functions for membrane trafficking proteins.
Next | Pastures new.
Leanna Smith | MIBTP Student
I came to the Royle lab for a rotation project during my Masters year of the BBSRC-funded MIBTP PhD programme. My project was to generate mutants in cancer relevant spindle proteins using CRISPR/Cas9.
Next | Miniproject with Richard Bayliss, Leicester.
Hamdi Hussain | MOAC Student
I am on the EPSRC-funded Molecular Organisation and Assembly in Cells (MOAC) programme. My project in the Royle lab was to engineer tagged versions of spindle and kinetochore proteins for ding knocksideways experiments.
Next | Miniproject with Andrew McAinsh.
Cecilia Velasco Dominguez | ERASMUS student
I was an undergraduate student from Barcelona when I visited the Royle Lab for a 6-month project on membrane trafficking. Previously, I did a research project with Artur Llobet at IDIBELL on synaptic vesicle recycling.
Next | Back to Barcelona to finish her degree.
Liam Cheeseman | PhD student
Liam did his PhD in the lab between 2010-2013. He used knocksideways to rapidly remove proteins from mitotic spindles.
Next | Postdoc with Melina Schuh, MRC-LMB.
Oliver Sinfield | Rotation student
Ollie's 12-week project in the lab was to investigate a potential link between membrane trafficking and cancer.
Next | PhD in Life Sciences, Warwick.
Andrew Fielding | Postdoc
Andrew worked on the regulation of clathrin-mediated endocytosis during the cell cycle. He worked in the lab between Dec 2010-Jan 2013.
Next | Postdoc with Judy Coulson, University of Liverpool.
Gisela Gassner | ERASMUS student
Gisela came to the lab from FH Krems, Austria for a placement (Jul 12-Jan 13). She worked with Andrew on CME regulation during mitosis.
Next | Back to Austria to finish her degree.
Fiona Hood | Postdoc
Fiona worked in the Royle lab from Dec 2007-Dec 2012. She purified the TACC3/ch-TOG/clathrin complex from mitotic spindles and worked out how the complex sticks together and to microtubules.
Next | Postdoc with Ian Prior at the University of Liverpool.
Samantha Williams | Research Technician
Sam worked in the lab from Nov 10-Aug 12. She worked on aurora A regulation of TACC3-clathrin binding.
Next | PhD with Ana Losada, CNIO, Madrid.
Yasmina Sahraoui | Summer student
Yasmina worked on clathrin-adaptor interactions during the summer of 2012.
Next | Finishing her degree at University of Liverpool.
Anna Korniejewska Willox | Postdoc
Anna worked on synaptic vesicle recycling and identified stonin-2 as a major adaptor protein at the synapse. She worked in the lab Nov 08-Mar 12.
Next | Working at KWS Biotest, Bristol.
Daniel Booth | PhD Student
Dan did his PhD with Steve and Ian from Oct 08-Oct 11. He got correlative light-electron microscopy working in the lab and showed microtubule crosslinks contain clathrin.
Next | Postdoc with Bill Earnshaw, Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, Edinburgh.
Maria Blixt | Research Technician
Maria worked in the lab from Nov 08-Nov 10. She worked on gene fusions involving clathrin heavy chain expressed in human cancers.
Next | PhD at Uppsala Universitet, Sweden.
