Coordinates all the projects, fights for money, and helps with more precise and careful troubleshooting. In the meantime, he tries to spread his optimism and positive attitude to all in the lab, while still juggling pipettes.
Julia began her PhD when the lab was in still Dresden, and she spearheaded the move to the ICR in London. Her expertise in redox is a perfect fit for our ROS group. She previously studied ROS signalling at the cellular level at the University of Innsbruck, Austria and ROS signalling during neuronal development at the University of Cambridge, UK. In the Mansfeld Lab, she is currently investigating how intracellular ROS regulates the activity of cell cycle proteins.
Jacky joined the lab in London in 2022 as a member of the RadNet radiotherapy research network. His current research is investigating how protein oxidation induced by radiotherapy can regulate cellular processes and potentially influence cell fate. He received his PhD from the University of British Columbia in Canada, where he studied androgen receptor transactivation in prostate cancer. He is originally from Vancouver and is an avid yogi outside the lab.
Esther O. Ige
Esther is a scientific officer with a BSc in Biochemistry and an MSc in Cancer. She is currently working on understanding the relationship between FZR1 and Lamin A/C during nuclear reformation of mitosis. Driven by her aspirations, she plans to pursue a PhD, expanding her academic horizons. Outside the lab, she enjoys exercise and reading (especially useful during her commute).
David joined the lab to investigate the role of cysteine oxidation in the regulation of mitotic progression and genome stability. Before joining the Mansfeld lab, he worked on cell cycle regulation, using a number of imaging approaches, at the Universities of Bath and Plymouth and the ICR. Outside the lab, he enjoys hiking and is a keen baker.
Elizabeth completed a BA in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, specialising in Genetics. She also spent her summers at the university, as a research assistant in Plant Sciences, and continued this role for another year after she had graduated. At the ICR, Elizabeth investigates how changes in the oxidation state of cell cycle proteins affect cell proliferation. She intends to balance her PhD alongside her hobby of Ballroom and Latin dancing!
