Laura finally gets to give her ASP Suffness award lecture at the annual meeting in Washington DC! Avoided COVID this time, what a relief ;) 

July 2023

Welcome Sania Colbert and Alex Tabag to the lab! Sania is joining us for the summer via the UC-HBCU program from Fisk University. Alex is joining as a postbac research for the year that was awarded a supplement on our collaborative project with the McKinnie lab!

Congrats to Gordon for his paper hitting the web at Mol Cell Proteomics! In this highly collaborative project with the Burdette and Su labs, we developed an untargeted mass spectrometry microprotein profiling method, identified cystatin A, validated it an animal model, and demonstrated that cystatin A is present at 100 pM concentrations using a label-free microtoroid resonator and translated our workflow to patient-derived tampon samples!
