The Klaus Schulten Memorial Symposium took place in Champaign-Urbana. It was wonderful to hear wonderful science and personal stories from people Klaus touched in his life! We will continue to miss him and carry on his vision and passion for science!
Martina and Elizabeth attend the NRAMM Workshop on Advanced Topics in EM Structure Determination, the first in NYC! A lot of exciting challenges ahead, specially for cryo-ET!
Elizabeth attends the Bioscience and Philanthropy Summit at the Allen Institute. Great location, fantastic science, and very stimulating interactions!
Elizabeth is named a 2017 Pew Biomedical Scholar!
Elizabeth was honored to serve as co-guest editor for Klaus Schulten’s Memorial issue, published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry B.
In collaboration with the Poglianos and Agard labs, we unveiled how very large viruses affect the cellular machinery of bacteria during infection. The most exciting finding: segregation of the (viral) genetic material inside a shell forming a nucleus-like compartment that separates transcription and translation! We used cryo-FIB milling and cryo-electron tomography to reveal the molecular details of this phenomenon. Read our paper and watch a movie.
Elizabeth is a recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award. Thank you Dr. Collins for funding high risk research!
Reika is selected as a finalist for the prestigious PRESTO program of the Japanese Science and Technology Agency. おめでとうございます!
