Cheryll Tickle Prize Lecture
Dr. Michele Tinti
"Evolution of signal multiplexing in the vertebrate animals"
Dr. Michele Tinti has been awarded the first Cheryll Tickle Prize for Cell and Developmental Biology. This biennial prize aims to acknowledge the work of PhD students or Postdoctoral Fellows working in the Division of Cell and Developmental Biology and is worth 500GBP. Michele's prize winning contribution is his discovery of an exciting new cell signaling paradigm, which provides a unifying logic that helps explain the evolution of the vertebrate animals, their variety, and their regulatory disorders (Tinti et al., 2012). To make his model computationally accessible, Michele has further generated an interactive database named ANIA (Tinti et al., 2014). Most excitingly, Michele has used ANIA as a 'cipher' to unlock patterns in a huge datasets of somatic mutations in cancers that were released recently.
