AHA comes through, and other news…

PSBLAB post-doc’ Chaitanya Kulkarni (Chaitu) found out this week that his AHA post-doctoral fellowship (the one he wrote just 2 months after joining the lab!) is gonna be funded!  Congratulations Chaitu!

Next month Paul is speaking at Drug Discovery 2018 in San Francisco CA, and in January we’re presenting posters at this Keystone CO meeting on Cardiac and Skeletal Muscle Mitochondria.

Yves Wang’s paper on the mitochondrial unfolded protein response and ATF5 was resubmitted recently (after getting the run around elsewhere. The pre-print on BioRxiv has been updated.

A few years ago, Rebecca Parodi-Rullan, a grad’ student in the lab of Sabzali Javadov at the University of Puerto Rico  was awarded an SFRBM “mini-fellowship” to spend time in our lab learning the mouse Langendorff perfused heart method. In December Rebecca will defend her PhD thesis, and then she’s off to NYU for a post-doc!

Also in December is the beginning of Module 5 – Metabolism – in the new IND431  “Foundations in Modern Biology” course. In addition to making the lecture notes available to URMC students on BlackBoard, I am investigating the possibility to try to host some of the course materials here.
