Our lab attended the 25th Annual Genetics Day lectures and poster sessions. Post doc. Jeanne Hansen, graduate students Laura Yunes-Medina, Bradley Mills and bioinformatician Dalia Ghoenim presented their hard work through posters. Photos below.
Congratulations to Marc Halterman, our PI, for being appointed a new position as an Associate Professor of NeurologyAssociate Chair for Basic Research within our University!
A few of his roles in this position will be:
1) Develop a clinical neuroscience summer fellowship program
2) Director of the Postgraduate medical Scientist Training Program in Neurology
3) Work with OTT, the Office of Technology Transfer to develop new Academic-Industry partnerships
At the beggining of the month our lab members participated in a volunteering event as part of a larger CNDD project involving Food link and helping with stocking and sorting of food pallets.
Welcome to Dalia, the newest member of our lab. She will be working as a laboratory technician on the project involving transcriptomic analyses of BDNF-CHOP signaling in developing neurons.
We welcome Jeanne Hansen this month as our post doctoral member of our lab, who is bringing her experience from Yale University and applying it to her project involving post translational modification of Hif 1alpha in ischemic brain injury.
This summer Laura Yunes-Medina and Bradley Mills have joined our research team as graduate students; we wish them a successful start with their studies.
Congratulations to Alaina on being nominated for Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship program and on being accepted to the Summer Scholar program! She is currently researching lipid droplet regulation by bZip proteins.
Congratulations to Joe Thomas for being accepted at University of Maryland, School of Pharmacy!
Congratulations to Art for being accepted for his Graduate studies at the University of Alabama, Birmingham!
