Spring Accomplishments!

Sharing some of our students’ accomplishments that have happened this Spring 2016 semester …

  • Jake Z presented an aesthetically pleasing and scientifically interesting research poster at our March College Graduate Research Symposium representing his work in Dr. Elaine Lee’s lab. Thank you for a smart looking poster and being a smart-dressed student representing the PSM Program and the AHS Department.  Thank you Dan and Lauren for attending and giving up some Saturday time.
  • Jen T completed her 3-month internship at Transgenomics, New Haven. Jen’s advisory committee; Dr. Campellone, Denise Anamani and I are looking forward to learning about the exciting science at her exit presentation in April.
  • Jen and Jake finishing up final projects… Congratulations to our first Health Care Genetics PSM (almost) Graduates… one month to go!
  • Mahin and Dan… better late than never to say welcome to an exciting field of study, happy you found us
  • Lauren W – congratulations on your Fall 2016 acceptance to the PhD Program in MCB… best of luck during your research rotation in Dr. Rachel O’Neill’s lab … you have excellent mentorship at the Beach.  I’m certain you will hatch out of your “cocoon” and become a great butterfly centromere researcher in no time.
  • Audrey M – will be starting a genetics education and health promotion internship June 2016 at the prestigious Dartmouth Hitchock Hospital Cotton Cancer Center. Audrey taught clinical genomics data analysis to our undergraduate Diagnostic Genetic and Medical Lab Sciences students this semester – excellent work.
  • Jen K, Lauren, Dan B and Audrey completed our pilot offering of a Next Generation Sequencing Training Module over Spring Break in the Center for Genome Innovation .. exciting data for Dr. Sal Frasca. Thank you Dr. O’Neill, CGI Director, for helping coordinate this opportunity and especially to Dr. Bo Reese for her exceptional technical skills and superb teaching prowess.
  • Thank you Dr. Tsongalis for an exciting research project – Lauren and Dan are working tirelessly to statistically analyze this data set… crossing our fingers for biologically relevant (aka publishable) data
  • Looking forward to finding research rotations, internships and opportunities for Jen, Mahin, Mohammed, and Dan moving forward this summer and the upcoming coming fall-spring 2016-2017 academic year.
