Phill Hawkins, graduate of the School of Biosciences, elected Fellow of the Royal Society
Description
We shall be welcoming Phill Hawkins from the Babraham Institute for this seminar on Thursday 4 July. Phill obtained his PhD here in my laboratory. Since about 1990 he and Len Stephens, another Birmingham graduate, have jointly led a research group at the Babraham Institute that has been making ground-breaking discoveries about the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signalling system that is activated by many extracellular stimuli (including insulin and several growth factors) to regulate cell growth and other functions.
