Lu lab at the 34th Genetics and Development Department Retreat! Yinglu gave a talk and Lizzy and Dimitrios presented posters. Dimitrios won the best poster prize. Good job to everyone!
Our first paper is published! A great collaborative effort that identifies H3K36 di-methylation as a key player in recruiting de novo DNA methyltransferase DNMT3A and maintaining intergenic DNA methylation. We hope that these findings will translate into better management of patients with cancers and overgrowth disorders that are associated with mutations in these enzymes.
Lab farewell lunch for our awesome undergraduate summer students. Look forward to seeing Vaib and David back for the new semester. Abe and Andrés - you will be missed!
Several good news for the group: Dimitris has joined the lab as a graduate student; four undergraduate students, Andrés, Abe, Vaib and David, have received prestigious fellowships to perform summer research; and Chao has been named as a Pew-Stewart Scholar! Here is a news coverage by HICCC.
The lab went to a Yankee’s rained-out game. We still had fun but next time someone other than Chao should pick the date….
Chao gave talks at the AACR annual meeting and the Gordon Conference on Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics on recent findings from the group.
Dave and Dan from the Allis lab visited us from Rockefeller. It was fun lab lunch with our academic grandfather!
