We're overjoyed to have Jessie as part of our lab as a prospective PhD student. Receiving her Master's from Yang-Ming University in Taiwan, Jessie delved into the mysteries of how red blood cells lose their nucleus by investigating the roles of EKLF, a transcription factor whose dysfunction can lead to anemia and thalassemia. She is also adept at translational research: she screened compounds for inhibition of angiogenesis in melanoma, and 9 of the compounds she screened show
One of our postdocs, BK, has won recognition for his poster at the Annual ICMB Retreat, which he presented at the illustrious Horseshoe Bay Resort. His expertise in dissecting novel transcriptional networks through the lens of super-enhancer-mediated regulation was rewarded with a cash prize. Congratulations!
Dr. HaeWon Chung, a graduate student from our lab, has begun working at Sanofi, the fifth-largest pharmaceutical company in the world in terms of sales. Headquartered in France, he is now working at their Boston branch. We wish him the best of luck in his endeavors!
We are pleased to welcome Nisha for the first rotation of our lab. Nisha is a veteran embryologist hailing from the University of Pittsburgh, where she accrued abundant histological experience, particularly in the field of neural tube development. In addition to neural embryology, she was a guest researcher at the National Institutes of Health, where she shifted her focus to nephrology and diabetes research, showing a deep commitment to translational medicine with abundant im
