Andy Yu, one of our undergrads, has just returned from his prestigious summer research fellowship (SURF-Stem Cell) at UT Southwestern. He polished his CRISPR skills and performed injections into mice for the very first time, presenting a methods/proof-of-principle poster detailing an innovative (and confidential!) CRISPR-related technique that his lab developed that should hopefully benefit the whole field of epigenetics! We are glad to herald his triumphant return.
We are pleased to announce that senior grad student Lucy LeBlanc won the 1st place award in the grad student category at the illustrious ICMB Annual Retreat, this year held at the Lazy Hills Conference Center. Shortly after winning the award, she treated former and current labmates (as well as those who helped her get to and from the conference!) to a lunch at Taco Joint.
