Kudos are in order for Danting Cao (GS5, Pharmacology PhD Candidate, UC Colorado Anschutz) for receiving a predoctoral T32 training grant and Dr. Karina Serban, MD for receiving a foundation grant for using iPSC derived alveolar macrophages to study A1AT disease. Such science rockstars! Congratulations!
Kudos to Kevin Ni for receiving a F30 NRSA (predoctoral fellowship for MSTP students) from NHLBI.
Matt Justice successfully defended his thesis on the role of acid sphingomyelinase in autophagy. He will be pursuing autophagy research as a postdoc in Dr. Andrew Thorburn’s at UC Denver Anshutz. We wish him the best!
