Both graduate students gave oral presentations on their recent work at this year's ASV, which was held in Minneapolis, MN, covering topics ranging from virus-induced acetylation to subcellular protein translocations.
Samvida's accomplishments continue to be honored, with both a summa cum laude bachelor's degree distinction, and a prize for Best Senior Thesis! We are so proud of you, Samvida, and will miss having you around lab!
Ileana will be carrying the role of DGS starting in September 2019, accepting the mantle from Dr. Zemer Gitai. She will be the go-to mentor for all MolBio graduate students at Princeton, and continue to develop our graduate school into a world-class program!
Cora headed up to New Brunswick for the annual American Society of Microbiology (New Jersey branch) meeting, where she interacted with many bacteriologists and got some great feedback on her work on the evolutionarily-conserved antiviral enzyme, SIRT4.
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.
