In this exclusive interview, EMBO editor Maria Polychronidou speaks with meeting co-organizer Dr. Kathryn Lilley, about her vision for the “Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease” eSymposia virtual meeting, and many of the exciting new advances and directions that will be covered. Hear from Dr. Lilley about:
Dr. Kathryn Lilley is the Professor of Cellular Dynamics in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, UK, where she directs the Cambridge Center for Proteomics. Her research program creates and applies technologies to measure the dynamics of the transcriptome and proteome in high throughput in space and time during critical cellular processes. Her groups has also contributed many informatics tools to efficiently mine spatiotemporal proteomics data. In 2018 she was awarded the HUPO Distinguished Achievements in Proteomics Award. In 2020 she was elected as a member of EMBO.
Dr. Maria Polychronidou is a Senior Scientific Editor at Molecular Systems Biology (EMBO Press). She received her PhD from the University of Heidelberg, where she studied the role of nuclear membrane proteins in development and aging. During her post-doctoral work, she focused on the analysis of tissue-specific regulatory functions of Hox transcription factors using a combination of computational and genome-wide methods. She joined Molecular Systems Biology as an Editor in 2013.
