Yutaka, a post-doc in the lab, recently published a study in collaboration with NIBB Japan, in which he used phosphoproeomics and computational biology to uncover signal transduction pathways that respond to mechanical force and developmental transitions in Xenopus embryos.
Tim and Katelyn, 3rd year graduate students in the lab, have been elected as the co-chairs of our Graduate Mentorship Outreach Program's (GMOP) Adult Outreach branch, together with Lilia, another Princeton graduate student. They aim to plan multiple public events that link everyday activities with science, and continue to build connections with the adult community around Princeton. Can't wait to see what fun venues they come up with!
Laura, a 4th year graudate student in the lab, was elected as the chair of our Graduate Mentorship Outreach Program (GMOP)! She is now in charge of all GMOP-associated events and accomplishments at Princeton, and will use her position to continue communicating and celebrating science with the greater New Jersey community. Congrats and good luck, Laura!
After a grueling round of interviews, Samvida, an undergrad in our lab, became one of 5 people in the entire country of India to receive a Rhodes Scholarship this year! We are so thrilled for Samvida and this extraordinary accomplishment. We look forward to what the future holds for you!
Pierre wrapped up his time in the Cristea Lab with an excellent public oral defense and subsequent celebrations with lab members, family, and friends. He is headed to Steve Carr's lab at the Broad Institute in Boston for his postdoctoral fellowship. We'll miss having him around in lab dearly!
