Congratulations to lead author, Dr. Kelsey Gray Gray on the acceptance of our paper, titled, "Quantitatively relating brain endothelial cell-cell junction phenotype to global and local barrier properties under varied culture conditions via the Junction Analyzer Program," for publication in Fluids and Barriers of the CNS. This paper was co-authored by undergraduate student Jae Jung from our lab and collaborators Dr. Joe Huang and Collin Inglut..
PhD students Mary Doolin and Ariana DeCastro represented the lab at the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Conference held in Puerto Rico this week. Both gave poster presentations on their research. Great job!
Welcome to the newest lab member, Dr. Li Yan, who will be working as a Research Assistant Professor! Dr. Yan received her B.S. in Biotechnology, followed by a PhD in Molecular Biology from China Agricultural University. After completing her PhD, she worked as a research fellow at the Yunnan Key Laboratory of Primate Biomedical Medical Research and then as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Macau in China.
