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.
New MCMP graduate student Sandra Ordonez Rubiano joins the lab. She is interested in the chemical biology of chromatin and will be working on the regulation and targeting of PBAF bromodomains.
Congratulations to Katelyn on a successful defense! I may have cried a little.
Students in the lab have had a banner month for fellowships!
Rachel receives the Purdue University Cancer Center undergraduate research fellowship for Summer 2018
Katelyn receives the Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship from the MCMP Department for Fall 2018
Libby receives the Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship from PULSe for the 2018-2019 school year.

Wow! Congratulations to everyone in lab for your awards of these competitive fellowships!
Katelyn's paper with Dr. Uma Aryal, director of the Purdue Proteomics Facility, describing methods for profiling nuclear complexes is published in Proteomics. Congrats!
Chad is a medicinal chemist with a recent PhD from Dr. Kyle Hadden's lab at UConn. Chad will be working on developing chemical strategies for inhibiting chromatin binding proteins. Welcome!
Aktan's paper characterizing a small SWI/SNF subcomplex defined by GLTSCR1/GLTSCR1L is in press at JBC. Congrats!
Sijie's work with the Krusemark and Hof Labs to develop robust metrics for DNA-encoded library selection parameters leads to some novel insights about selectivity for CBX7 and CBX8 chromodomain ligands. The paper is up online in SLAS Discovery. Congrats Sijie!
Aktan receives funding from the Purdue College of Pharmacy to travel to a conference this summer. Congratulations!
