Pierre traveled to Ghent, Belgium to give a talk at the 42nd IHW conference. He discussed his work on spatiotemporal proteomic approaches to examine organelle dynamics and functions during virus infections.
Joel and Yutaka (postdocs) traveled to Indianapolis, IN along with Pierre, Marni, and Krystal (grad students) to present their work at the annual ASMS meeting. Joel, Yutaka, Marni, and Krystal were invited to give posters, and Pierre presented in an oral presentation section - they collectively represented our lab's work in everything from HSV-1 latency to heart disease.
Pierre M Jean Beltran is the recipient of the 2017 Harold W. Dodds Fellowship, which was established in honor of Princeton’s 15th president. This competitive fellowship is given to students following a rigorous selection from candidates across all departments in the university. Pierre’s project focuses on studying the role of organelles in viral replication using proteomics, microscopy, and computational approaches.
Pierre was honored for his excellent academic work and scholarship thus far as a graduate student at Princeton University with the Harold Dodds Honorific Fellowship award. This is one of 4 monetary awards presented to graduate students across all disciplines each year at Princeton. Congratulations and well-deserved, Pierre!
The Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Foundation, which supports early stage investigators engaged in biomedical research that has the potential to significantly advance the understanding, diagnosis, or treatment of disease, has named Ileana Cristea as a 2015 Mallinckrodt Scholar.
Elizabeth Rowland, graduate student in the Cristea lab, is the happy recipient of a scholarship from the National Science Foundation. Her research project will focus on characterizing the roles of several human sirtuins during viral infection.
