Stephanie, Laura, Sampada, Chris, and Kimberly all attended the CellBio22 Meeting by ASCB/EMBO, with posters, sessions, and so much great science. It was great to be in person again!
Almost the whole lab attended the local ASCB Triangle Cytoskeleton meeting. Laura, Sampada, Chris, and Elliot presented posters, and Chris won a poster award. Stephanie talked about Laura McCormick’s beautiful thesis work
Laura presented her lovely thesis work at the CSHL Meeting Molecular Mechanisms of Neuronal Connectivity
Kimberly was awarded a prestigious HHMI Gilliam Fellowship. Congratulations Kimberly!
Kimberly Lukasik, graduate student in the Cell Biology and Physiology Curriculum nailed her qualifying exam and is officially a PhD candidate. Congratulations Kimberly!
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.
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!
