For her seminar on virus-directed organelle remodeling -- which was the very last 15-minute presentation of the 2-day conference -- Katelyn was awarded the recognition of "best oral presentation by a PhD student". It was delivered with beautiful slides and engaging explanations of her data. So proud!
Covering our lab's interests on virus-host protein interactions and subcellular dynamics, our lab members put together some beautifully detailed posters to highlight their work and make connections with other members of our department. We heard great things about your presentations & conversations, so congrats, you three!
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.
Katelyn was named the 2021 graduate student recipient of the American Society of Cell Biology's (ASCB) Porter Prize for Research Excellence, which recognizes individual research contributions that "provide new ideas and new avenues for exploration in cell biology," as well as the advancement of professional practices for promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace. As part of this...
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!
Following a nearly two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Katelyn and Peter are stoked to get our collaborative group meetings up and running again. We are excited to connect with the other virologists at Princeton and share in some great science!
