The Kovarik lab summer research students presented their work at the 2017 fall research symposium on September 26, 2017. Julia Clapis was interviewed for a story on Trinity’s website!
The lab had a strong showing at the ACS-CVS spring meeting at UConn on Saturday, April 22. We had 5 poster presentations, and Allie’s was selected as the “Best Poster” award winner.
I am excited to be a 2017 Cottrell Scholar and thrilled to have support for our project looking at biological noise in Dictyostelium discoideum as well as for my work on using the primary literature in the classroom. More info about the program is here.
The first research paper from the laboratory, titled “Interspecies comparison of peptide substrate reporter metabolism using compartment-based modeling,” has been accepted by Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and is now available online. It was even selected by the editor to be highlighted as a Paper in Forefront! Congratulations to co-authors Allie, Nhat, Kunwei, and Prof. Brooks Emerick, and many thanks to our colleagues in the Allbritton Lab at UNC and the Graf lab at UConn for their help.
Kunwei Yang and Allie Tierney presented their research at the fall national ACS meeting in Philadelphia this week.
I also presented an overview of the lab’s work in a symposium honoring the Division of Analytical Chemistry’s awardee for chemical instrumention, Nancy Allbritton. Congratulations to Dr. Allbritton on her much-deserved recognition!
The lab’s recent grant funding was just profiled on the Trinity website! You can read the story here.
