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.
Now that we are in the third month of 2021, we would like to take a moment and celebrate the accomplishments our members made in 2020 while staying healthy and safe. Congratulations to graduate student, Danielle Buglak, for her hard work and first author designation on the paper, “Excess centrosomes disrupt vascular lumenization and endothelial cell adherens junctions” in Angiogenesis this past August. Other authors include: Erich J. Kushner, Allison P. Marvin, Katy L. Davis and Victoria L. Bautch. Check it out on our publications page!
