Prakash Arumugam joined the Translational Research division of BII in January 2015. He completed his doctoral work at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology in India in 2001. During his PhD, he showed that the human lamin B receptor has sterol biosynthetic activity. He joined Prof. Kim Nasmyth's laboratory at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna as a postdoctoral fellow in 2002 and elucidated the role of cohesin's ATPase activity in sister chromatid cohesion in budding yeast. He joined the University of Warwick in the UK as a lecturer in 2007 and established his independent laboratory to study meiotic cell cycle and chromosome segregation in budding yeast. His group identified the first binding site for monopolins at the kinetochore, and a conserved signalling module (Rim15-PP2ACdc55-Endosulfine) that regulates entry into gametogenesis, in budding yeast.
