A huge congratulations to Will Benman and Tom Mumford, who both passed their qualifying exams and became the first PhD candidates in lab history.
Our protocol describing how to build and use the optoPlate-96 is published today in Nature Protocols. The optoPlates are devices that allow high-throughput, multiplexed optogenetics experiments in microwell plates. Check out our optoPlates section and build your own!
The lab welcomes two summer students, Ayush Aditya Pal and Abbas Idris.
We are excited to receive our first NIH funding for an exciting collaboration with friend and colleague, Alex Hughes (check out the Hughes lab here). Together with our fearless grad students, our aim is to develop a new platform for highly multiplexed single-cell proteomics.
A warm welcome to Guillaume Harmange as our newest rotation student. And another welcome to former rotation student Will Benman, who officially joins the lab for his PhD.
We are honored to receive our first competitive funding awards, one from the W.W. Smith Charitable Foundation, and one from the UPenn ACC-SEAS Discovery Science program (collaboration with Donita Brady).
The lab welcomes Will Benman as a rotation student. Welcome Will!
David Gonzalez-Martinez joins the lab as a research technician. Welcome David!
Lukasz's postdoctoral work is published in Science, with an accompanying perspective and news release. The work shows that cancer mutations may not simply be ON-switches for growth signaling, but can change how cells perceive their environment. An excellent collaborative effort and a great springboard for our new lab!
Shannon Laub and Thomas Mumford join the lab as our intrepid first graduate students. Welcome Shannon and Tom!
The Bugaj Lab begins in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Come say hello!
We have several open positions and are actively recruiting. Please see details here.
