Farewell to Jack, who just graduated with high honors. He is on his way to Harvard, where he will start as a PhD student in the department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Good luck!
We welcome Michelle, who joined our lab in summer 2012.
Congratulations to Navin who was one of the winners of Sigma Xi Student Research Day Poster Competition at the Thomas Jefferson University in Spring 2012. Navin presented poster titled "Investigating the Interactions between DNA and a Platinum Metalloporphyrin".
Our lab welcomes Vienna, Navin and Cole who joined the lab this spring.
Congratulation to Jack and Steven, their paper is now published in Nucleic Acids Rsearch:
Nicoludis, J. M.; Barrett, S. P.; Mergny, J.-L.; Yatsunyk, L. A. "Interaction of human telomeric DNA with N-methyl mesoporphyrin IX, NMM" Nucleic Acids Res. accepted
Jack gave an oral presentation at the Undergradutae Summer Research Symposium held at Haverford College. Jack and three other students were selected out of 95 students from Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Ursinus and Swarthmore to present at this event. In addition to oral presentations all students presented posters on their summer research.
Congratulation to Amlan, Karan, Rowen, Jack, Scott, David K. and David M. on publication of their paper:
