July 1, 2020
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!

Elene and Katelyn launch the Science Reel! tab on our website

July 1, 2020
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.

Our lab's work on cGAS post-translational modifications, led by graduate student Bokai Song, is highlighted on ASBMB Today

June 20, 2020
In an interview-based article posted by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), Bokai and Ileana discuss their perspectives on how cGAS post-translational modifications (e.g., phosphorylations, acetylations) can toggle the anti-viral sensor's ability to recognize and subvert pathogen invasions. Bokai's - and... Read more about Our lab's work on cGAS post-translational modifications, led by graduate student Bokai Song, is highlighted on ASBMB Today

Ileana is honored for excellence in graduate student mentorship

June 1, 2020
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!

Cora and Ileana highlight the utility of proteomic technologies in uncovering viral pathologies

May 1, 2020
Especially relevant with the ungoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, Cora and Ileana's prospective article in the HUPOST forum of the Human Proteome Project discussed key applications of mass spectrometry-based proteomics in revealing the underlying mechanisms of viral pathologies, and how these technologies could be leveraged to combat the pandemic.
