Congratulations to Amy for her publication in Cellof her previous work at The Gladstone Institute at UCSF in Dr. Deepak Srivastava's Lab studying heart regeneration.
Julia presents the lab's latest research on how CSF3R mutations synergize with mutations in CEBPA and SETBP1 in CNL and AML at the American Society of Hematology Conference in Atlanta.
Sarah Carratt joins the Maxson Lab as a postdoctoral scholar. Sarah recently completed her PhD at UC Davis where she studied pharmacology and toxicology. In the Maxson Lab, she will be applying her pharmacology expertise to develop targeted drug therapies for leukemia.
Amy & Julia attended the FASEB Hematological Malignancies Conference in Vermont and took a dip in the Saxton River to cool off.
Amy even befriended the only other native "Mainer" at the conference, Kira, so they could compete in a lobster shucking contest.
Amy presents her work "CRISPR/Cas9 to Model the Genetic Complexity of CSF3R-Driven Myeloid Malignancies" at The Broad Institute in Boston.
Celebrating our first novel activating mutations. Credit to Amy for the lovely western blot.
Cody emerges victorious after a long battle with a tricky genotyping PCR. Way to go, Cody!
Amy's first CRISPR experiment worked beautifully! She was so excited that she took the gel photo home to put on her fridge. She is slightly less excited about Julia taking her picture while she's trying to set up her PCR.
