Adam has joined the university-wide faculty of USC Stem Cell: an initiative to connect researchers tackling questions in stem cell biology from across the sciences, engineering, and the Keck School of Medicine.
This week Megan received an honorable mention for her application to the NSF GRFP award program; a great accomplishment. Her research project proposes new models that can explain cell fate decisions through single-cell communication. Congratulations, Megan!
Gina Yang has won an undergraduate research fellowship to support her honors thesis work in our lab. She is studying cell-cell communication networks in colorectal cancer. Congratulations, Gina!
Adam visited City of Hope today to give a talk on “Inferring the dynamics of hematopoiesis from single-cell data.” City of Hope is a not-for-profit research center and hospital that hosts a large research hub with labs working on many basic and translational challenges in cancer biology.
Adam spoke at the Society of Mathematical Biology annual meeting, at the Université de Montréal. He presented a talk in the developmental biology mini-symposium on ”Single-cell approaches to unravel the developmental trajectories of cells.”
Congratulations to Xiaojun for receiving a prestigious Viterbi fellowship for the second consecutive year! This award from the department will help to support his PhD studies in computational biology.
