We are sad to see Jane leave, but happy that she gets to spend more time with family and hobbies. Jane set up the lab and kept everything running for many years. We appreciate everything you've done for us!
After 8 long years, our high throughput screen for BAF inhibitors is published! What a great collaborative effort with the Crabtree Lab, the Broad Institute and the amazing Mahmoudi Lab! These compounds inhibit just a subset of BAF function and serve as HIV latency reversal agents. There's still more to do in order to optimize, characterize and utilize these macrocycles, but we are excited that the first step is published.
Katelyn is hooded and heads out for bigger and better things at the NCI, working in the laboratory of Laufey Amundadottir in the division of epidemiology and genetics. Good luck! We will miss you.
