We are pleased to be part of a team that published an exciting nature paper this week. Takahiro Ito and his lab contacted us to help with a story about metabolic flux through the branch chain amino transferase enzyme in leukemia, and after about 2 years of work, the story came together nicely!
It is important to communicate science to the public, perhaps more now than ever. I just dug out a video that was made of a talk that I gave at the UAB Metabolomics Workshop in 2015. Steve Barnes, the director of that workshop and metabolomics efforts at UAB invited me to give this talk.
Here is a story on our Moore Foundation project with Mary Ann Moran. It is an exciting project and great team of collaborators!
The past few months have been quite productive. As the saying goes, “the harder I work, the luckier I get”!
New NIH RO1 (with Bill Brey, NHMFL): Development of a High-sensitivity 13C NMR Probe for Metabolomics
New Moore Foundation (with Mary Ann Moran, UGA): Assessing the movement of carbon currencies between marine microbes
New NSF (again with Mary Ann): Metabolic Currencies of the Ocean Carbon Cycle
NIH Admin supplement (with Ted Ross, UGA): Predictive modeling to identify biomarkers of disease severity in Zika virus infections
NIH RO1 (with Maureen Keller-Wood): Effects of Maternal Cortisol on Fetal and Neonatal Growth and Metabolism
Stay tuned for more that might be on the horizon!
