Congrats to Joseph Pearson for publishing a first author paper in Developmental Biology. His article "Enhancer diversity and the control of a simple pattern of Drosophila CNS midline cell expression" was available online ahead of print on May 20, 2014.
Two studies from the Xiong lab (Li et al., 2014 and Yan et al., 2014) in Molecular Cell show that CUL7, OBSL1, and CCDC8, all mutated in 3M short stature syndrome, form a centrosomal complex that regulates CUL9 and its substrate Survivin to link mitosis to cell survival.
The discovery, from the lab of Brian Strahl, PhD, offers insights for the creation of better, more targeted therapies for various forms of cancer.
Congratulations to David Allison, postdoctoral fellow in the Greg Wang lab who is the recipient of a fellowship from Debbie's Dream Foundation.
Congratulations to Rui Lu, postdoctoral fellow in the Greg Wang lab who is a recipient of a Lymphoma Research Foundation Award.
Congratulations to Dr. Scott Rothbart, postdoctoral fellow in the Strahl lab who received a K99 award from NCI effective February 1, 2014.
Congratulations to Shobhan Gaddameedhi, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Sancar Lab and Dileep Varma, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Cook Lab who both received highly competitive NIH K99 pathway to independence grant awards.
Congratulations to Peter Thompson, Harsha Gunawarden, Seth Zimmerman, Tim Jacobs and Marino Convertino.
Congratulations to Dr. Scott Rothbart, a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Brian Strahl's lab who is one of the recipients this year of a Joseph S. Pagano award
