We are delighted to announce that Dr. Veronika Ostapcuk has decided to join our lab for her postdoctoral fellowship! She comes to us from Marc Buhler's lab at the FMI in Basel and after publishing a beautiful paper in Nature!
Congratulations to Dr. Seth Cassel for defending his Ph.D. thesis! Seth is returning to the hospital to complete the final two years of the MD part of his MD/PhD.
Congratulations to Dr. Brittany Michel for defending her Ph.D. thesis! Brittany has accepted a position as a Curriculum Fellow in the Leder Program for Human Biology at HMS.
Welcome to new research technicians Martin Filipovski, Nina Kuprasertkul, and Busayo Bulonduro!
Congratulations to Gabe, John, and colleagues on a beautiful story in Molecular Cell! Here, we identify that the ERG transcription factor binds BAF complexes and retargets them genome-wide to drive oncogenic gene expression in prostate cancer.
Congratulations to Matt, John, and colleagues on their publication in Cancer Cell where they find the SS18-SSX fusion oncoprotein hijacks the genome-wide occupancy of SWI/SNF (BAF) complexes to drive synovial sarcoma. Their work was also featured on the cover of the June issue!
Congratulations to Dr. Josh Pan and colleagues on his new publication in Cell Systems. Working with collaborators at the Broad Institute, his team investigated how patterns of genetic co-dependency across cancer cell lines can reveal biochemical relationships within protein complexes. Their work will be highlighted on the cover!
Keeping the Kadoch lab streak alive, Matt brought home a $1000 top presenter award at the Karin Grunebaum Cancer Research Foundation Poster Competition!
Dr. Steven Poynter successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis! Dr. Poynter is joining Choate’s Intellectual Property Group as a Staff Scientist. Congrats Steven!
Congratulations to Dr. Josh Pan on successfully defending his Ph.D. thesis! Dr. Pan will be joining Dr. William Hahn’s group as a Post-doctoral Fellow.
