«Like oil and water: phase separation in the cytoplasm and implications for neurodegeneration»
"Anthony Hyman is an outstanding cell biologist and an excellent and inspiring speaker.
In addition to the many findings in the field of cell division, his original approach has led to the discovery that cells can organize biochemical reactions in liquid-like membrane-free compartments that separate from the rest of the cytoplasm like oil separates from water.
This discovery has important implications for the understanding of human disease since with age or metabolic changes liquid-like compartments can convert into more solid structures found in neurodegenerative disorders."
