Congratualations to Anjali Nelliat from the Rong Li lab on being awarded the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) Travel Award to attend the ASCB conference in San Francisco this year!
“Debonil Maity (pictured second from right), a second-year PhD student co-advised by Drs. Yun Chen and Sean Sun was selected for Travel Award to attend American Society of Cell Biology Annual Meeting at San Francisco in December. Debonil studies the effects of hydrostatic pressure changes on the ECM and cells. We congratulate Debonil to be recognized for his good[…]
“Matthew Pittman, a Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering undergraduate student from Dr. Yun Chen’s Lab of MAFIA was selected for Travel Award to attend American Society of Cell Biology Annual Meeting at San Francisco in December. Matt’s winning project is high-throughput measurement of sub-pN forces generated by motile cells. It is a rare honor for undergraduate students. Good job, Matt!”
Congratuations to: Siew Cheng Phua (Takanari Inoue Lab), Linhao Ruan (Rong Li Lab), Michael Wells (Debbie Andrew Lab), Jeanne Sisk (Carolyn Machamer Lab) on being awarded the Lewis Travel Award!
Meier EL1, Razavi S2, Inoue T2,3, Goley ED1. Abstract In most bacteria, the tubulin-like GTPase FtsZ forms an annulus at midcell (the Z-ring) which recruits the division machinery and regulates cell wall remodeling. Although both activities require membrane attachment of FtsZ, few membrane anchors have been characterized. FtsA is considered to be the primary membrane[…]
The Isaac Morris Hay and Lucille Elizabeth Hay Graduate Fellowship Award was established to provide support for predoctoral students performing outstanding research in the field of cell biology. Awardees receive one year of stipend and medical insurance (September 1, 2016 – August 31, 2017). Two awards will be given in 2016 and future competitions will be held based on availability of funds.
Highlights Lineages and growth rate distributions reveal effects of ADS Asymmetry of segregation is dependent on single-cell damage The population benefit of ADS increases with stress Summary Asymmetric damage segregation (ADS) is a mechanism for increasing population fitness through non-random, asymmetric partitioning of damaged macromolecules at cell division. ADS has been reported across multiple organisms,[…]
