Welcome to new lab members Selin Rostami, Narek Janikian and Imex Aguirre Cardenas! Selin participated in our group meetings in the fall, but plans to start doing research this spring. Welcome to all!
Jonny, Dane and Lannah attended the CSUPERB Symposium along with Karin, held in Garden Grove CA. This was Dane’s first time at CSUPERB and the second time for Lannah and Jonny. All three presented posters of their research, which were very popular at their poster session!
Karin travelled to Dublin, Ireland to attend the ICMRBS conference. She met up with old colleagues and presented a poster of our research that drew some interesting people into discussion.
Recently-graduated Marlyn has accepted a lab research position at Amgen. She starts on August 20. Congratulations, Marlyn! We hope you enjoy the corporate life 🙂
Karin attended the Protein Society symposium in Boston. In the morning she gave a 30 minute talk about the HdeA project, and in the afternoon she presented a poster about the project. Both were very well-received!
Welcome to Akemi, who is joining our lab as a new BUILD PODER student! Akemi is getting started early in research – she will complete one more year at Pasadena Community College before transferring in 2019. Happy to have you join us, Akemi!
Today Lannah embarks on her summer internship at UCLA. We will miss her, but hope that she has a great experience at UCLA!
This afternoon, before the college commencement ceremony, the department held a reception to honor graduating students and awardees. Marlyn was recognized for earning her MS degree, and Lannah was celebrated for winning the Analytical Chemistry prize.
Marlyn very successfully defended her thesis today in a very impressive seminar presentation to the department. We celebrated in a party afterward with the biochemistry students and faculty as well as Marlyn’s family. Congratulations Marlyn!
Congratulations to former lab member Eddie, who has accepted a research position at Amgen! We hope you enjoy your new job, Eddie – finally some real money!
