This incredibly competitive position was awarded to our long-time lab member, Dr. Todd Greco, and we couldn't be more thrilled for this well-deserved recognition of his accomplishments and invaluable contributions to molcular biology and proteomics. Cheers to you, Todd!
Geared towards communicating relateable, current science to a general audience, the Science Reel! forum launched with an article about emerging viruses and how proteomic technologies have been leveraged to combat them - with heavy focus on SARS-CoV-2 (for obvious reasons). Elene and Katelyn plan to continue writing short posts that highlight the public health aspects and inclusive environment that support our lab's research.

At the Princeton graduate school's virtual 2020 commencement, Ileana was publicly recognized for her acheivements and service as a mentor to graduate students at Princeton University. She was one of four faculty members to receive the Graduate Mentoring Awards from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. We couldn't agree more - congratulations to our fabulous leader, Ileana!
An even more admirable accomplishment considering the virtual nature of the last months of data acquisition (!!) and the oral exam, Caroline and Pranav both passed their senior theses examinations and are leaving us for bigger and better things. We'll miss you two and are excited about your futures!
We are thrilled to officially welcome two new graduate students to our lab, Matthew Tyl and William Hofstadter. Both have already provided unique perspectives, skillsets, and open teamwork to our lab family - can't wait for the years ahead!
Despite being canceled due to COVID-19, Katelyn, Cora, Tim, & Laura were notified of their abstracts' selections for presentations at the annual American Society for Virology Conference, covering their respective work on dynamic virus-host protein interactions that facilitate subcellular remodeling during HCMV infection.
