    Fuse or die: A conversation with Orian Shirihai

    Fuse or die: A conversation with Orian Shirihai

    11 July 2022 - “We binned the data, which is one of my favorite things to do,” said cell biologist Orian Shirihai, describing how careful observation and analysis transformed an inquiry into the regulation of insulin secretion into a groundbreaking description of the mitochondrial life cycle. The resulting portrait of what Shirihai refers to as “the social life of mitochondria within the cell” was published in The EMBO Journal in 2008. The paper, “Fission and selective fusion govern mitochondrial segregation and elimination by autophagy”, has since received almost three thousand citations and is included in the journal’s 40th anniversary collection. Konstanze  Winklhofer discusses the paper’s enduring impact and the role of mitochondrial quality control in her field of neurodegenerative diseases.

    Proteomics and personalised medicine

    Proteomics and personalised medicine

    6 May 2022 - The amazing advances in gene sequencing technology over the last two decades have not yet sparked the revolution in personalized cancer treatment that many had hoped for. Although there have been significant advances,  actionable mutations, those that can be targeted to improve patient survival or quality of life, remain rare. But there is also the option to leapfrog genomics entirely, or to complement it, by using proteomic approaches. You may be surprised to learn that, as the guests on this episode of our podcast, Ursula Klingmüller and Matthias Mann told us, clinical proteomics is already being explored to design personalized cancer treatment strategies. Klingmüller and Mann discussed the technological (read the Mann lab’s recent Molecular Systems Biology paper on single cell proteomics here), scientific, and clinical challenges of the field with Molecular Systems Biology Senior Scientific Editor Maria Polychronidou.

    “I learned early on that you can do a lot with a small amount of money”

    “I learned early on that you can do a lot with a small amount of money”

    21 March 2022 - Fiona Watt has been recently appointed EMBO Director, taking over from Maria Leptin, who was inaugurated as the new president of the European Research Council in the fall of 2021. Fiona and Maria sat down to discuss science funding, what scientists get wrong about interacting with policymakers, the importance of failure, and much more. The conversation took place in Heidelberg, not long after the start of the war in Ukraine, and we also talked about EMBO’s Solidarity List for displaced researchers.

    From cell death to cancer immunotherapy

    From cell death to cancer immunotherapy

    3 March 2022 - In the November 1992 issue of The EMBO Journal, Tasuku Honjo and colleagues reported the discovery of a new gene, which they named programmed death 1 (PD-1). Thirty years later, monoclonal antibodies against PD-1 were being used in the clinic to treat cancer patients, and in 2018 Tasuku Honjo shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine with James Allison. “The paper has been transformational. I don’t think that they would ever have predicted that looking into genes that were differentially expressed that they would get such an important molecule that would be transformative for cancer immunotherapy,” said EMBO Journal Chief Editor Facundo Batista. In this episode of the EMBO podcast, Tasuku Honjo spoke about his journey from medical school to basic research, the importance of academic journals, and the many surprising turns in the PD-1 story. We also talked to Pierre Golstein, whose group cloned CTLA-4.

    EMBO Young Investigators past and present

    EMBO Young Investigators past and present

    16 February 2022 - The EMBO Young Investigator Programme (YIP) was created in 2002 to support researchers starting their first lab (to be eligible, “applicants must have been an independent group leader for at least one year and for less than four years”). The programme provides mentorship, training, and networking opportunities for both the PIs and their lab members. Applications for the YIP programme are currently open. The EMBO podcast spoke with a YIP alumnus, immunologist Matteo Iannacone, and a recently selected member of the programme, neuroscientist Katrin Franke.

    “These papers are the best papers that we’ve ever produced”

    “These papers are the best papers that we’ve ever produced”

    2 February 2022 - Cell biologist Prachee Avasthi has a longstanding interest in cilia, which she began studying in mammalian photoreceptor cells as a graduate student, before adopting the single-cell green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as her model organism. Prachee was recently appointed Chief Scientific Officer of the newly created Arcadia Science, and she also serves as president of the non-profit science organization ASAPbio. ASAPbio is EMBO’s partner in the peer-reviewed preprint platform, Review Commons. Prachee and Review Commons project leader Thomas Lemberger joined the EMBO podcast for a discussion on open science, preprints, peer review, and the importance of community.
