It is a bittersweet moment, but after 10 years running the Cell Division Lab, I have decided to take a break from research. The effects of covid combined with ever reducing funding rates here in Australia and increasing costs of research, have made it virtually impossible to continue to sustain my research lab. We are still working hard to finish up the final bit of research, which we hope to publish very soon. In the meantime, we have still managed to have quite a productive 2021, with several publications. You can find links to these below.
