Rachel Sousa, a 3rd-year MCSB student in Drs John Lowengrub, Francesco Marangoni, and Armando Villalta's labs, has been selected to participate in the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. Every year, Nobel Laureates convene in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists from all over the world. These young scientists are selected through a highly competitive, multi-stage application and nomination process. In addition to the one-time chance to participate in a Lindau Meeting, these young scientists become part of a special community – a network of excellence. As alumni of the Lindau Meetings, former participants stay connected with each other and become ambassadors of the scientific dialogue fostered by the Lindau Meetings.
Congratulations to Rachel!
Karen Xiao, a 4th-year MCSB student in Dr. Anand Ganesan's lab, was awarded the People's Choice Poster Award at the 2022 NCI Junior Investigator Annual Meeting! Her poster was entitled, "Identifying Signaling Networks in Melanoma Tumors that Promote the Uncontrolled Growth of BRAF Mutant Melanocytes."
Dr. Min Wu (MCSB Inaugural Class 2007) has been awarded a NSF Career Award. Her project, "Probing Multiscale Growth Dynamics in Filamentous Cell Walls," will develop mathematical models and computational methods to simulate, predict and quantify various aspects of cell wall expansion. Findings from this study will have great impact in agriculture and public health.
Presently, Dr. Min Wu is an assistant professor in the Division of Mathematical Sciences at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA.
Dr. Enrico Gratton and Dr. Weian Zhao publish their latest work, Spatial transcriptomics using combinatorial fluorescence spectral and lifetime encoding, imaging and analysis, in Nature Communications!
Dr. Ali Mortazavi's discusses his lab's most recent work, Coordinated Gene Expression and Chromatin Regulation during Hydra Head Regeneration, published in Genome Biology and Evolution this month, with New York Times.
