Undergraduate co-op student Jennifer Mitchell was awarded a summer studentship award from the School of Biomedical Engineering to fund her summer research project! She will be working on using CRISPR-Cas9 to uncover the mechanisms of how transcription factors act as regulators of Pol II transcription.
After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from UBC in 2019, Henry worked with Artron BioResearch Inc to help develop the Health Canada approved SARS-CoV2 antigen test kit that’s now widely available.
Henry joins the Teves lab as a Masters student on Jan 2023. Looking forward to hearing more about Henry’s future projects in the Teves lab!
Our latest work on how Heat Shock Transcription Factors interact with mitotic chromosomes is now posted as a preprint in BioRxiv. Here, graduate student Rachel Price and postdoctoral fellow Marek Budzynski discovers a new mode of TF-mitotic chromosome interaction using a combination of genomics, live cell imaging, and single particle tracking microscopy. Read all about it here!
Iris joined us in Sept 2021 as a Co-op student. A year later, she completes her co-op and returns to finish her last year for Bachelor’s degree. She received an NSERC USRA award, and has collected data that will be included in a research manuscript.
Estelle joined as in May 2022 as a BMB EDI work-learn student. She leaves us to start her 3rd year of undergrad studies.
Best of luck to Iris and Estelle with the coming academic year!
