Xinlei's final public oral was titled "Investigating the function of human sirtuin 3 in regulating mitochondrial morphology and function during viral infection", and friends and colleagues from all over the world tuned in via Zoom to see his beautiful talk! We are particularly thrilled that the talented Dr. Xinlei has chosen to stay as a post-doctoral scientist in our lab, as it is difficult to imagine our lab family...Read more about Dr. Xinlei Sheng graduates with his PhD!
Featuring a diverse array of talented panelists from accorss the world (including our previous labmate, Laura Murray-Nerger), this workshop covered recent developments in proteomic technologies, analytical tools, and biological perspectives surrounding the discovery and interpretation of post-translational modifications in human disease.
Laura defended her PhD thesis today, giving a wonderful talk that captured her elegant work in defining mechanisms of protein acetylation and dynamic remodeling of the nuclear lamina. She will next be moving to Boston to join the lab of Dr. Benjamin Gewurz at Harvard Medical School as a post-doctoral researcher. We are so proud of everything you have accomplished, Laura, and can't wait to see what you do next!
Ileana, Cora, and Dawei gave oral presentations; Jaime and Katelyn gave lightning talks; Josh, Jaime, Xinlei, Katelyn, and Matt presented posters; and the entire lab attended the 17th Annual US Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) conference.
Michelle was one of three speakers to open the spring semester of Princeton's Molecular Biology Colloquium, giving an overview of the many computational avenues and accomplishments her PhD work has followed the past four years.
In recognition of her impressive graduate work thus far, Cora's application for an F31 fellowship with the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID) was accepted for funding. Congratulations on this well-deserved opportunity, Cora!
Meeting the challenge of providing prospective PhD students with a genuine (and useful) interview experience, Will, Matt, Katelyn, and Tim volunteered on the organizing committee, and Michelle and Cora also participated throughout the weekend. Our graduate students collaborated with others across the department to design, plan, and coordinate virtual events like group trivia, Gathertown socials, technologies seminars, and virtual resources that encouraged organic interactions during an otherwise virutal weekend.
