BioVox got to speak with Prof. David Masopust, the man who discovered resident memory T cells. His seminal breakthrough opened up a new branch of T cell biology and catapulted the field forwards. Masopust shares his thoughts on the enormous untapped potential of T cells in new treatments and vaccines.

Constant production of proteins in living cells is subject to strict quality and concentration control. The ubiquitin-protease system (UPS) is one of the systems responsible for degrading misfolded and damaged proteins. Also, short-lived regulatory proteins that control many critical cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, cell proliferation and differentiation, cell signalling and transcription are degraded by UPS.1

This is a question that drives me each day. Microbial products have been around for a long time; starting with rhizobium in legumes, dating back 125 years. Yet, in the United States, rhizobium inoculants have not been widely adopted by soybean farmers – some indicate less than 15% use overall in the United States. Why?

From Consortia to Recombinants: opportunities and challenges facing the next generation of microbials
Posted 24th August 2020 by Liv Sewell
In this blog post I will discuss two themes that I see driving the next generation of live microbe biologicals for agriculture. These are the rational design and delivery of pairs or consortia (which I will define as more than two microbes) and the commercialization of engineered strains.

Five or six years ago, I was looking for a strategic direction for the KIMIA Lab. We started with the problems. We asked, ‘What problems do we have in medical imaging?’
