Welcome Ashima! Coming from U.Toledo, she’ll be working in the lab for four months as part of an internship.
Welcome Nick and Yifei who are both joining the lab after their rotations!
We were lucky to have two awesome high school students conduct research with us over the summer. Janelle (mentored by Jill) is now at Mizzou. You can read more about her experience here. Spencer (mentored by Chufan) won the top prize at his program’s poster session. Read more about the program he participated in here.
The lab recieved a DP2 grant for “Molecular Mechanism of Natural Killer Cell Recognition.” Starting September 2018, this grant will allow us to probe further into the mechanisms of NK cell activation and inhibition. Read more about it here.
Congratulations to Jill and Andrés for receiving NSF fellowships for their graduate studies! Their GRFPs will start this year.
