Clare Waterman, Stephanie’s PhD advisor, was recently inducted to the National Academy of Sciences! Stephanie went to celebrate Clare’s awesome accomplishments and science at a special symposium, Watermanfest, held at the NIH.
The Biophysical Society had a fantastic meeting: Quantitative Aspects of Membrane Fusion and Fission in Padova, Italy. Stephanie attended and presented Fabio’s unpublished work. The meeting was inspiring and the venue was amazing.
Stephanie was to attend and present Nick’s thesis work at the Emerging Concepts for the Neuronal Cytoskeleton EMBO Meeting in Villarrica, Chile. Unfortunately due to weather, full planes, and plane shortages, her trip was cancelled at the last meeting. Luckily Nick could make it from his postdoc lab at OSU, and will present his work from the Gupton lab to an awesome audience.
Congratulations to Emily for receiving a 2019 SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship)! We are excited to have you in the lab full time this summer Emily.
Collaborative work with the Jung lab at USC investigating TRIM9 in stroke is published in Cell Reports
Anigika Basant highlighted a preprint from the lab on PreLights. This nicely highlights the significance of the work and summarizes our major findings.
Nick Boyer, Laura McCormick, Fabio Urbina post a preprint about coordination between TRIM9 and TRIM67 in regulation of filopodia stability and axon guidance.
The lab received a notice of award for some new work investigating glycosylation of the axon guidance cue Netrin from the Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience!
