One of our star undergrad students, Cord Helken, presented his research at the CURO symposium on April 3. The symposium was great and featured some real undergraduate stars at UGA. Cord even got to present his poster to the Provost (who was impressed)!
Rahil Taujale (second year IOB student co-mentored with Prof. Kannan) became a training fellow in the Glycobiology Training Program in the CCRC!
This is very well-deserved, as Rahil is making great progress on constructing a phylogeny of glycosyl transferases.
We have added several people recently to the lab.
Max Colonna moved from a research scientist to a first year Biochemistry grad student. Max is co-mentored by Shaying Zhou (IOB and Biochemistry), so we also get to start an exciting new project with her lab!
Sicong Zhang joined the lab as a first year Biochemistry grad student. Sicong is very good with MATLAB, so she will be helping with several projects. Her main project will be to work on the new Phytoplankton project with Mary Ann Moran (UGA Marine Sciences).
Dr. Haris Panagos started as a postdoc near the end of 2016. Haris will be splitting his time between technical support in the NMR facility and working on the new phytoplankton project.
