2022

  • A big congratulations to Aniruddha and the team for their paper in Nature Methods. His work paves the way for determining oligomeric organization and lipid binding to membrane proteins directly from customizable lipid membranes. Applying this platform, he shows how lipid binding regulates synaptic vesicle fusion speed. A big thanks to all the collaborators around the world.

 

  • Congratulations to Rachel for her stellar score in NIH-NCI F31 in her first try! Special thanks to my colleagues Megan King and Patrick Lusk for running the F31 workshop.

 

  •  Congratulations to Caroline for delivering a fantastic talk at ASMS 2022.

 

  • Congratulations to Aniruddha for the fantastic platform talk at the ASBMB 2022.

 

  • Congratulations to Fabian for bagging a lucrative industry job. We are sad to see you go. All the best.  

 

  • Congratulations to Aniruddha for the Spotlight talk at the Annual Biophysical Society meeting 2022.

2021

  • Congratulations and best wishes to Anushka, our first post-bac, towards her journey into the world of public health at NYU. The lab will miss you!

 

  • A big congratulations to Fabian for his paper in Biophysical Journal. His work showed that. Applying this platform, he shows how lipid binding regulates synaptic vesicle fusion speed. A big thanks to all the collaborators around the world.

 

  • A big Congratulations to Anushka and our team of collaborators in the MacMicking lab for their paper in Science. Through CRISPR-Cas9 screens, the MacMicking lab discovered ApoL3 as a potent bactericidal agent protecting non-immune barrier cells. Anushka’s nativeMS, combined with CryoEM and biochemical assays performed by the MacMicking lab show that ApoL3 dissolves the anionic membranes of bacteria into human-bacterial lipoprotein nanodiscs and kills the bacteria.

 

  • Congratulation to Anushka and her team of collaborators in the Isaac Lab for their paper in Cell Chemical Biology.
