Dustin Bosch, a member of David Siderovski's lab, successfully defended his dissertation and received his Ph.D. March 21, 2013. The title of his dissertation was "Elucidating G protein signaling and ubiquitin conjugation in Entamoeba histolytica." Our congratulations to Dustin!
Members of Dustin's family who came to support and celebrate with him were his wife, Samantha, his parents, Rubin and Lasy Bosch, his sister Rachel Swartz, his parents-in-law Mark and Cindy Filipek, and his sister-in-law Autumn Filipek. Family members flew all the way from North Dakota for Dustin's big day, except for his sister, Rachel, who came in from Columbus, Ohio.
Dustin will return to UNC Medical School to finish his joint MD/PhD medical education.
