The Gupton lab is lucky to have two excellent BBSP rotation students this fall rotation. Welcome to Chris Ho and Shannon Rhoads!
Great new for Laura McCormick from NINDS: her F31 proposal to study VASP and dendritic spines is funded! Congratulations Laura.
Anna Kim, an incoming MSTP student at UNC does her first rotation in the lab. Welcome Anna!
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 Stephanie attended and presented Fabio’s unpublished work.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.
