Brangwynne Interviewed by Science Magazine

The November 25 issue of Science magazine contains a five-segment news focus section on “Mysteries of the Cell”, with each segment devoted to a particular unsolved mystery.  One of the segments, entitled “How Does the Cell Position Its Proteins?”, contains excerpts from an interview with Clifford Brangwynne, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, discussing his recent work:  “this cytoplasmic fluid is actually highly structured, which is useful for putting things in the right place at the right time.”  Elsewhere in the same segment, cell biologist Timothy Mitchison of Harvard Medical School states, “It’s fair to say Cliff has discovered a new state of biological matter.”  The full segment, written by John Travis of Science, can be viewed here for those with journal access.
