Lab News

 

January 2019

The lab is 1 year old! We had many highlights last year including the addition of the first lab member, Kristin Rosche, the opportunity to work with several graduate rotation students, being awarded our first NIH R21 and a generous intramural grant from WSU. We closed out the year with a couple of collaborative publications (linked here and here). All in all, it has been an excellent year and a privilege to work with wonderful colleagues- looking forward to what 2019 brings!

This year starts with graduate student, Lindsay Sidak-Loftis, joining us for her 3rd rotation- welcome!
