Biography :

Bungo moves from the lab of Keith Gull in the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology where he completed a 3 year postdoc. Before this, he was a graduate student in Seattle. He is supported by a Wellcome Trust/Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellowship for 5 years. On top of this, he was selected for a Wellcome-Beit Prize Fellowship, a prestigious award given to the top fellowship candidates.

He has a longstanding interest in understanding how cells transmit their chromosomes and the role of the kinetochore, a protein complex which links the chromosomes to the mitotic spindle ensuring that the chromosomes segregate correctly. Studying the complex from undergraduate days, he has shifted from S .pombe, to S.cerevisiae as a graduate student, and since then, to the parasite Trypanosoma brucei, the organism which causes African sleeping sickness.
