BLOOM LAB -- News
Orr Ashenberg's paper on mapping sites in influenza nucleoprotein that affect sensitivity to MxA is
published in . PLoS Pathogens Mike Doud's paper on complete mapping of antibody escape
is published in on March 13 -- the same day that he defends his thesis. Congratulations Mike! PLoS Pathogens Jacob Kowalsky is awarded a
Mary Gates Scholarship to support his undergraduate reserach in the lab. Congratulations to both Jacob and his mentor Alistair.
Adam Dingens receives a
Young Investigator Scholarship to present at CROI 2017 the research that he has been performing in the Bloom and Overbaugh labs. Jeremy Roop joins the lab as a postdoc. Jeremy is a joint-advised by the
Overbaugh and Bloom labs. He completed his PhD at Berkeley, working with Rachel Brem.
Katherine Xue receives the Parker Travel Award for the best graduate student presentation at the
Genome Sciences department retreat.
Danny Lawrence (an MD/PhD student and Genome Sciences graduate student) joins the lab.
Katherine's paper on cooperating influenza viruses
is published in . Her paper receives extra coverage eLife here and here.
Sarah Hilton (a first-year Genome Sciences student) joins the lab for the next few months as a rotation student.
Jolie Carlisle (a first-year Genome Sciences student) joins the lab for the next few months as a rotation student.
Shirleen Soh joins the lab as a postdoctoral fellow. Shirleen is supported by a Mahan Fellowship from the
Computational Biology Program at the Hutch. She comes to the lab after completing her PhD with David Page. Anja Ollodart (a first-year MCB student) joins the lab for the next few months as a rotation student.
Mike and Orr's paper that uses deep mutational scanning to compare the site-specific amino-acid preferences of two protein homologs
is published in MBE. We bid Alec Heckert farewell as he heads off to Berkeley to begin his PhD.
Katie Hooper successfully defends her thesis
We bid Bargavi Thyagarajan farewell as she heads to New York to begin work at the
HIV Vaccine Enterprise after a very productive postdoc. Our lab makes a small contribution to the
Hensley lab's excellent study in PNAS showing how original antigenic sin might help explain the high rate of pdmH1N1 infections in middle-aged adults during the last flu seasion.
Alistair Russell joins the lab as a postdoc.
Every lab gets its 15 seconds of fame! The Bloom and
Fowler labs take a joint trip to the ballpark. The Mariner's lose the game, but the labs get a shout-out on the scoreboard.
