Guy Rutter is Professor and Head of Section of Cell Biology and Functional Genomics at Imperial College London. His research involves understanding signal transduction mechanisms in the pancreatic β-cell with a focus on using functional genomics to dissect the role of genes associated with Type 2 diabetes. After studying for a PhD in Bristol with Dick Denton FRS on mitochondrial Ca2+ signalling, he worked as an MRC travelling Fellow with Claes Wollheim in Geneva and collaboratively with Tullio Pozzan and Rosario Rizzuto in Padua. There, he established new approaches to explore the control of insulin release at the single cell level through the use of recombinant targeted probes. He then returned to Bristol, becoming a full Professor of Biochemistry in 2002, before moving to Imperial College in 2006. He was awarded the Minkowski prize of the EASD in 2004 and gave Diabetes UK's Dorothy Hodgkin Lecture in 2013. His current research is supported by a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award, MRC Programmes, by Diabetes UK and by the European Commission (Horizon 2020, "Rhapsody").

"Loss of retinal pigmented epithelial (RPE) cells is responsible for severe vision impairments in retinal degenerative disorders, such as retinitis pigmentosa. Stem cell-derived RPE cells have shown promise as a cell therapy for treating retinal degeneration in preclinical studies, but long-term positive outcomes require efficient engraftment and survival of the transplanted cells. Taking a step in this direction, we have developed a tissue engineered product comprising human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived RPE cells that were grown as sheets on a biological scaffold. Transplantation of these hESC-RPE cell sheets into a rat model of retinal degeneration resulted in greater cell engraftment and survival and improved visual acuity compared to hESC-RPE cells transplanted as cell suspensions. These tissue engineered cell sheets may improve the efficacy of cell therapy for treating retinal degenerative diseases"

Abstract: Differential dynamic microscopy (DDM) is an increasingly adopted technique that extracts local, multi-scale quantitative information about dynamic samples observed with optical microscopy. The very straightforward DDM approach, originally demonstrated with bright field microscopy of aqueous colloids, has lately been used to probe a variety of other complex fluids and biological systems - including liquid suspensions, soft materials, cells, and tissues - with many different imaging methods, including dark-field, differential interference contrast, wide-field, light-sheet, and confocal microscopy. The number of adopting groups is rapidly increasing and so are the applications. Here, we briefly recall the working principles of DDM, we highlight its advantages and limitations, we outline recent experimental breakthroughs, and we provide a perspective on future challenges and directions.
