Chi-Kang and Richard attended the 19th Annual Meeting of the RNA Society in Quebec City.
Chi-Kang presented a poster on "Quality control of telomerase RNA biogenesis", and Richard presented a poster on "Characterization of fission yeast tri-methyl guanosine synthase (tgs1)".
Peter was the keynote speaker at the Canadian Symposium on Genome Integrity and Telomeres in Quebec City.
Kristi, Lili and Maggie attended the EMBO conference on Telomeres, Telomerase and Disease in Brussels. Kristi and Maggie each presented a poster (titled "Molecular characterization of telomerase-independent survivors" and "In vivo selection for new telomerase RNA template regions in S. pombe", respectively), and Lili gave an oral presentation on "A Billion Years of Shelterin - Conservation of Interaction Modules and the Potential to Form Higher Order Structures".
We wish Ram well in his postdoctoral appointment in the
Ventura lab at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
Peter spoke about "Biogenesis and Regulation of Telomerase" at the Mendel Lectures in Brno.
Congratulations to the new graduates, Richard and Allie!
Congrats to Evan on passing his Master's defense!
Well done Dr. Kannan!
Ram passed his Ph.D. defense.
Congratulations to Peter on being named an HHMI Investigator!
The lab had a great time on their camping trip
to Niangua River; click here for pictures!
Lili and Elena both attended the Telomeres and Telomerase meeting in Cold Spring Harbor,
and Lili gave a presentation on "Fission yeast telomere architecture and length regulation."
We congratulate Wen on his postdoctoral appointment in the Mello lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
Ram's work in "Intronic sequence elements impede exon ligation and trigger a discard pathway that yields functional telomerase RNA in fission yeast" was published in
Genes & Development. Great job Ram!
Peter was named the Priscilla Wood Neaves Endowed Chair in the Biomedical Sciences.
Congratulations Dr. Lutes!
Aracely successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis.
