June 2009

On June 19 Nicki successfully defended her PhD thesis: "Subcellular Distribution of Apoptosis Associated Speck-like Protein Mediates Inflammasome Assembly: A Novel Mechanism in the Regulation of Interleukin-1beta Release." and returned to Medical School to finish her last 2 years of the MD/PhD program - Congratulations and Good Luck!

 

July 2009

We just received 2 NIH ARRA administrative supplements - one for a student position and one to upgrade our Nikon fluorescence microscope with a motorized stage, the perfect focus system and a stage top incubation system from Tokai Hit, which provides high resolution live cell imaging capabilities directly in our lab.

 

August 2009

Andrea just won a 3 year ARRA NIH R03 award from NIAMS: "Molecular mechanisms of cytoskeletal rearrangement in Rheumatoid Arthritis." - congratulations!

 

September 2009

We just received a 2 year ARRA NIH R01 competitive revision application to generate a novel conditional knock-out mouse model to study inflammatory host responses.

Bita Cyrus, a first year DGP student joined the lab for a 10 week fall rotation - welcome

 

November 2009

A position is available immediately for a motivated individual to join the laboratory as a research assistant to maintain a colony of transgenic and knock-out mice to evaluate inflammatory disease responses in vivo. Prior experience with mice is required. More detailes can be found at www.northwester.edu/hr/jobs/

Please contact me directly with a brief statement of your research interests, your CV, and 3 references.
