Movers: Before entering medical school in the Fall of 2019, Parth is moving on to a year of service with City Year Philadelphia (through Americorps). He will be helping prevent at-risk Philadelphia kids from dropping out of middle school. Shakers: What a summer…😅 Heather passed the written PhD qualifying exam, Unnati passed her oral qualifying Read More
Unnati was awarded a 2-year predoctoral grant from the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research. 😊
We are happy to have Parth “stop by” the lab en route to medical school. Welcome!
The Woychik lab and their collaborators the Husson laboratory at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School were awarded a new NIH R21 grant to study the molecular underpinnings of Mycobacterium tuberculosis dormancy and immune evasion during latent tuberculosis.
The lab’s first visit to an escape room, and we made it out with 2 min 33 sec to spare. Only 35% of the teams that have tried this room made it out in the allotted time (1 hour). Great teamwork! It was a balmy December day, perfect for exploring the city and dining out.
Former Woychik lab Honors Undergraduate Megan Chen (Genetics, German BS May ’17) secured admission into SIX excellent dental schools. Megan will be attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Outstanding!
Former graduate student Melvilí Cintrón (left, PhD May ’17) garnered her dream fellowship in Clinical Microbiology, securing the highly competitive and ONLY Clinical Microbiology Fellowship in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Start date July 1, 2018. Keep on smiling Mel!
Our loss is Emory’s gain. Go get ’em Mike!
Mel will spend the next year working as a Microbiologist in the New Jersey state health laboratory, officially known as the NJ Public Health and Environmental Laboratories, before embarking on a career as a Clinical Microbiologist. Have fun Mel and keep on spreading happiness!
