Evan Mastin, our visiting undergrad from Baylor, recently presented his summer research at the conclusion of the NSF REU program! He has been working in the Aldrich group on optimizing mutant calmodulin expression and labeling and accurately quantifying the amount of protein labeled. A job well done, Evan!
Carlos has been featured in the Biophysical Society’s July/August newsletter as the Biophysicist in Profile! Check out the online version of the article here.
David Castro has been working with Chris on the separation of SPANs through the Welch Summer Scholars Program. He presented his findings last week with a poster and a talk at the conclusion of the program. Congrats on a job well done!
Hyeyoung Kim has joined the group as a new graduate student. Welcome Hyeyoung!
A bit late, but welcome Evan Mastin and David Castro to our group for the summer! Evan, a NSF REU student from Baylor University, will be working with Stephanie and our collaborators on expression of CN-labeled calmodulin. David, a Welch Summer Scholar, will be working with Chris on separation of SPANs. We’re looking forward to working with you both!
Congratulations to Sean! His work looking into the effects of binding site mutations in calmodulin has been accepted into Biochemistry. Read more about it here.
Jenny’s recent paper on membrane water penetration is now featured on the May 7 cover of Biophysical Journal. Check out the Biophysical Society Blog post.
Our student Kavya Rajesh was interviewed for a UT News feature article. Congrats Kavya.
Morgan presented her work on reverse micelles at the Longhorn Research Poster Session 2019. Great job Morgan!
Congratulations Jenny! Her recent work looking at pHLIP peptide and membrane hydration was published in Biophysical Journal.
