Congratulations to Bonnie Walton on her BU UROP Travel Award, funding her trip to present with the lab at BMES next month!
Graduate student Shwan Javdan has been awarded a 2018 BUnano Cross-Disciplinary Fellowship for his work developing new extracellular sensing techniques. Congratulations Shwan!
Sam and Shwan have been awarded ACS Division of Biological Chemistry travel awards and will be presenting at the National ACS Meeting next week here in Boston at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. On Sunday, August 19th, at 6:00 PM, Sam will be presenting a poster on his work quantifying trade-offs in FRET biosensor design (BIOL 63) in Exhibit Hall B2/C. On Thursday, August 23rd, at 8:45 AM, Shwan will be giving a talk on his work developing new yellow-red FRET sensors for cAMP dynamics in Room 153B. Go check out some of our tool development efforts!
Sam, Bre, and Professor Sgro presented at the Mathematical Approaches to Cell-Cell Communication and Collective Behaviours workshop at the Banff International Research Station in Banff, Canada. In addition to all the fantastic science, they also fit in a little hiking.
Congrats to Mark, Bre, and Chuqiao for passing their qualifying exams and becoming our newest Ph.D. candidates in BME!
This summer we’re excited to have Bonnie Walton (BU BME Class of 2019) joining us to continue her working thinking about cAMP dynamics with a UROP award. We’re also thrilled to have Vivian Shi (Simon’s Rock Entering Class of 2017) joining us to work on some of our latest biofilm efforts. We can’t wait to see their research results!
New lab members!
After first year rotations, BME students Breanna, Mark, and Chuqiao have all committed to the lab. We’re thrilled to have them with us and can’t wait to see where their new projects will take them!
Congratulations to Bonnie on her second summer UROP award! We’re excited to have her back in the lab this June.
Achini Opathalage joins us from Brandeis University where she received her Ph.D. in Physics working in the Fraden Lab working on X-ray transparent microfluidics for protein crystallization and biomineralization. After her Ph.D., she joined the Dogic Lab to work on the collective dynamics of microtubules. She also served as the Assistant Director of Brandeis’s MRSEC Microfabrication Facility. We’re excited to have her here!
Congratulations to Allison and Ambika for receiving new UROP awards for Spring 2018 to continue funding their research projects!
