Angika Basant

I am a postdoc in Michael Way’s group at the Francis Crick Institute, London. I use Vaccinia virus-infected cells as a model to understand how complex signalling networks are organised. My PhD training was in Michael Glotzer’s lab at the University of Chicago, where I studied division plane positioning, primarily in C. elegans embryos. In addition to innate cell signalling mechanisms, I am interested in synthetic signalling and host-pathogen interactions, and like to learn new optogenetics and quantitative imaging methods.

I also enjoy singing slow, melodious songs and dancing to catchy tunes. I routinely perform these talents as well (to the private, appreciative audience of lab microscopes).
