We collaborated with researchers in 37 countries on a massive study of over 2,600 whole cancer genomes. Our lab specifically investigated the relationship between alterations in the genome and transcriptome. Congrats to Cameron and Max for all of their contributions to this huge collaborative scientific feat. Angela is highlighted in the press release and you can watch the her in the promo video too!
The scholarship will help fund her project on developing a splice variant database. The Bill H. James Foundation supports aspiring African American engineering students. Congrats Alexis!
The $200,000 award from the TRDRP will support our studies on the impact of splicing factor mutations in lung cancer associated with tobacco exposure for 3 years. Thanks to Eva and Cameron for their key contributions to this proposal!
Matt and Carmelle were both awarded Koret Undergraduate Research Scholarships. The funding will support Matt’s work on analyzing gene expression changes in the innate immune system and Carmelle’s project on discovering aberrant splicing biomarkers in cancer cells. Congratulations!
