Goodbye to Hiroki Takahashi

Dr Hiroki Takahashi has now finished his four-month visit to our laboratory and will be returning to Japan tomorrow.

Hiroki’s stay has been very successful: he has implemented new models for zinc uptake and efflux in Escherichia coli and used statistical inference to integrate these with new Lux expression data generated by our other Japanese visitor this summer, Dr Taku Oshima, who was visiting Jon Hobman‘s laboratory.

Hiroki and his family will be much missed and we look forward to seeing them on a subsequent trip to Japan. Thanks also to Alex Marshall for arranging Hiroki’s leaving do – pictured below!
