Stephanie attends the Dynamics of Cell Polarity GRC in New London New Hampshire and talks about Laura McCormick’s beautiful thesis work
Elliot Evans (UNC), Amienata Fatajo (UNC) and Claire Ahomo (Georgia Tech) are in the lab this summer. Welcome to Elliot full time and welcome to new members Amienata and Clare.
Stephanie received a Scialog Team Award through Chemical Machinery of the Cell. The goal of these awards is to catalyze breakthroughs in fundamental understanding of chemical processes which underlie the workings of intact living cells that will lead to a new era of advancement in cell biology. Along with Alexis Komor, (Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, San Diego) and Yan Yu (Chemistry, Indiana University), the team will work on the project: Elucidating the Polygenic Origins of Schizophrenia: Linking Protein Trafficking to Synapse Function
Graduate student Chris Ho is awarded a two year fellowship from the American Heart Association to investigate Coronin 1A role in TRIM-mediated neuronal morphogenesis. Congratulations Chris!
The lab is representing at the annual meeting of the American Society of Cell Biology/EMBO meeting. Chris Ho is presenting a poster on his work, Laura McCormick is giving a subgroup talk and poster, and Charise White is presenting a poster and a short talk at the doorstep meeting.
Melissa’s thesis work investigating the schrizophenia linked protein TSNARE1 was published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Melissa shows evidence that TSNARE1 localizes to and alters trafficking through the endolysosomal pathway. This has been such a fun project collaboratively between the Gupton and Brennwald labs that Melissa has driven. Congratulation Melissa!
Stephanie, Ellen, and David are excited to have their collaboration funded by an AI/ML supplement from the NIH Office of the Director
Fabio publishes Automated Detection and Analysis of Exocytosis in JoVE, complete with a freeware GUI/App for the analysis he created.
We are excited to have Dr. Ellen O’Shaughnessy join the lab as a research associate, where she will work on membrane remodeling in developing neurons.
