The lab continues an incredible run of new hires with James, our newest postdoc! He comes to us from the Alonzo lab at Loyola Chicago and is here to serve us a deep dish of bacterial pathogenesis research!
After an exhaustive search, the lab welcomes our new research specialist, Reyna, to the lab! We are excited about both the bacterial genetics expertise and Reyna/Rina name confusion she brings to the lab.
The lab is equally excited to welcome an even newer graduate student, Rina, a 3rd year from the MVP program! Way to steal Beatrice’s thunder, Rina.
The lab is excited to welcome our newest graduate student, Beatrice, a 2nd year from the MVP program who just joined after a successful rotation!
Congratulations to Daniel A. passing his prelims! He’s now officially a Ph.D. candidate! The lab is glad he can finally relax- oh wait, he’s in the MD/PhD program and has to take like 47 more major tests.
Congratulations to Alex DeLaney, who defended her Ph.D. today! Her incredibly polished dissertation talk took us all on a voyage of gene regulation. Details out soon in PNAS!
Alex will be starting Law School here at Penn in the fall. We’re so excited for her and wish her the best in adding to the ever expanding number of letters after her name.
The lab is super excited to announce Elisabet’s successful (like there would be any doubt) defense of her Ph.D. dissertation! Congratulations, Elisabet! We’re all happy for you, and wish you the best in your postdoc in the Nizet lab.
The lab is excited to announce our newest lab member, Daniel Akuma, an MD/Ph.D. student from the MVP program!
The lab is now 33% people named Daniel. Let’s see if we can do better! Prospective postdoc or graduate student candidates named Daniel or Danielle and interested in cell death and immunity are encouraged to apply. Please see the Project page for details.
Elisabet Bjanes (not pronounced “Buh-Janes”) won 1st prize for her poster at the UPenn Immunology Graduate Group retreat in charming Lancaster, PA. Well done, Elisabet!
