Following a two year post-doctoral position at U Penn, Dr. Lum (a former PhD student in the Cristea lab) has returned to us as our newest post-doctoral scientist! We are thrilled to have Krystal back, and can't wait to see the new scientific directions that will unfold in the coming years.
Matt and Josh are representing the graduate student and post-doc populations at Princeton, respectively, giving our community a chance to share science and grab a few drinks together every Friday of the academic year -- and in-person! Yay!
Welcome to our two newest graduate students! Tavis is a QCB (Quantitative Computational Biology) student and co-mentored by Dr. Olga Troyanskaya, working to develop new computational tools for analyzing proteomic datasets. Peter, previously an international affairs major at Georgetown University, is working with Katelyn, Bokai, and Xinlei, uncovering viral mechanisms of organelle remodeling and intra-cellular signaling. We are thrilled to add you both to our family!
John is joining us all the way from the Loo lab at UCLA, where his PhD work focused on using and developing mass spectrometry-based techniques to discover unusual (or lesser studied) post-translational modifications in bacteria. We're stoked to have him here in Princeton, and look forward to what we can accomplish together!
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.
