Congratulations to Research Associate, Ziqing Liu, for her recent first author designation on the paper, “Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Reveals Endothelial Cell Transcriptome Heterogeneity Under Homeostatic Laminar Flow ” in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, this past month. Congratulations to her hard work! Other authors include: Dana L. Ruter, Kaitlyn Quigley, Natalie T. Tanke, Yuchao Jiang and Victoria L Bautch. Check it out on our publications page!
Lab Lunches are always more special when we get visits from past lab members! Katy Citrin was an undergraduate and postbac in the lab working on our BMP project before she left to pursue her PhD at Yale. It is always nice to see familiar faces and we wish her luck as she continues on with her studies.
Congratulations to previous Post-Doctoral Fellow, Dana Ruter, for her recent first author designation on the paper, “SMAD6 transduces endothelial cell flow responses required for blood vessel homeostasis” in Angiogenesis this past month. The paper was the result of her hard work while in our lab and we are very proud of her. Other authors include: Ziqing Liu, Kimlynn M. Ngo, Shaka X, Allison Marvin, Danielle B. Buglak, Elise J. Kidder and Victoria L Bautch. Check it out on our publications page!
A big congratulations to graduate student, Karina Kinghorn, for receiving the AHA predoctoral fellowship award this past July. Also, this past year, Karina received NAVBO’s 21st IVBM Poster Award for her poster entitled, “Regulation of endothelial cell trafficking and secretion of soluble VEGFR1: Implications for angiogenic sprout guidance”. We are all very proud of her and are all excited to see where her project goes.
Graduate student, Molly Kulikauskas, received the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship in 2019! And in 2020 she received a poster award at the 2020 NAVBO for her outstanding poster entitled, “Cell Autonomous Role for SMAD6 in Embryonic Vascular Development”. We are so proud of Molly and are thrilled to see what she does next.
