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!
Sam presented his work on visualizing calcium signaling after wounding at this year's ASCB|EMBO joint meeting in Philadelphia.
Congratulations to Allison and Ambika for receiving UROP awards to continue funding the projects they started this summer! We can’t wait to see what they’ll accomplish this fall.
Congratulations to Sam for winning a travel award to attend the ASCB|EMBO joint meeting this December! He’ll be presenting a poster on his work visualizing and controlling intracellular signaling after wounding.
Professor Sgro has been awarded a Moorman-Simon Interdisciplinary Career Development Professorship. She's looking forward to investing it in training her students to be the next generation of groundbreaking interdisciplinary scientists.
We’ve had a very productive summer worth celebrating. In addition to our first results in the new space, Sam and Shwan joined the lab and passed their qualifying exams. Congrats to Sam and Shwan!
In January 2017 the lab will be starting in Boston University’s Biomedical Engineering department. Shortly after we’ll be moving into the brand new Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering building with the rest of the Biological Design Center.
