We just received a Notice of Award for a new R21 to study netrin-1 chemotaxis and haptotaxis! Woohoo
Chris Ho received a CFAC award for $10,000 to fund an exciting project using light sheet microscopy to examine axon branching in the mouse cortex in vivo. Congratulations Chris!
Kimberly was awarded a prestigious HHMI Gilliam Fellowship. Congratulations Kimberly!
Notice of Award arrives for a Leica Stellaris STED microscope to be housed in the Hooker Imaging Core, where Stephanie serves as Faculty advisor for Light Microscopy. We are so excited to bring this technology to campus and grateful for this S10 NIH funding
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!
Stephanie, Ellen, and David are excited to have their collaboration funded by an AI/ML supplement from the NIH Office of the Director
Laura McCormick received a 10k CFAC award for her proposal to define proteome changes in the PSD of our Trim9 and Trim67 knockout mice! Stephanie Gupton and Saskia Neher received a 50K award to study LPL trafficking from the School of Medicine Emerging Challenges in Biological Research
Great news for the Lab from NIGMS: A new R35 MIRA for the lab is funding investigating the role of TRIM proteins in regulating cytoskeletal dynamics and membrane delivery in cell shape change.
Great new for Laura McCormick from NINDS: her F31 proposal to study VASP and dendritic spines is funded! Congratulations Laura.
