Inside Cambridge is a new video series produced by the University of Cambridge on life at the University.

Go behind the scenes in this episode with two University of Cambridge researchers. What are they researching? How do they do it? What are their laboratories like? Meet Dr Rahia Mashoodh (Zoology) to find out about her work with beetles. Then take a guided tour of the Sainsbury Laboratory with plant scientist Dr Annalisa Rizza.

Dr Rizza discusses some of the key processes of her research - from the lab bench, to microscopy and then to the analysis of the results. Watch the video below or on YouTube (Annalisa's section starts at 9 minutes in) and read about Annalisa's research in Nature Plants.

New insights could help plants fortify walls against root pathogens

Sep 03, 2020

Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) researchers, as part of a multidisciplinary international team, have uncovered a mechanism controlling subtle changes to the architecture of cell walls in plant roots that bolsters their defence against Phytophthora palmivora without negatively affecting plant growth.

Cells in tight spaces – how the cytoskeleton responds to different cell geometries

Jul 09, 2020

Inside every living cell, there is a network of protein filaments providing an interior scaffold controlling the cell’s shape called the cytoskeleton. Research from the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) suggests that this relationship might actually be two-way, with cell geometry itself having the capacity to influence the organisation of the cytoskeleton in living plant cells.
