Ana received a seed grant from our generous department to fund her work on assay development and her studies of Mtb transcriptional regulation!
We are super excited to have Washington University rising sophomore Abby Tang in the lab full-time during the summer. She will be participating in many different aspects of the lab as she works towards collecting data sets on Mtb RNA polymerase transcription rates.
Never fear, Drake was wearing sunscreen! Thanks to Ana (not shown) for taking the pic.
Drake successfully defended his thesis work (all 607+ pages of it!!!). We are very proud of his accomplishments. His work has been fundamental in making the lab what it is today and define our future research trajectories. Congratulations Drake!
Both are Washington University undergraduate students who have recently joined the lab! They will be getting their first taste of biomedical research and helping us out with our projects on transcription regulation in Mtb.
Victor and his undergraduate colleagues presented their summer research posters. They spent the summer in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics department as part of a new program. Click here for more details
