Congratulations to Lisa Trevino for completing her SURF fellowship with the Troemel Lab

Over the last 8 weeks, Lisa Trevino has been working under the supervision of IRACDA postdoc Dr. Spencer Gang to perform research in our lab as part of the UCSD School of Medicine’s Pharmacology Department’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) Program.

While with us, Lisa grew familiar with C. elegans as a model organism and worked with Spencer to assess pals-22 mutants for altered mitochondrial function and morphology. As part of this research, they helped to establish a protocol for TMRM staining to measure mitochondrial potential in our lab.

Thank you for your great work during your fellowship and congratulations on a great presentation of your research at the SURF Research Symposium! Best of luck with your future endeavors.

Congratulations to our postdoc Vladimir (top left) for receiving the DeLill Nasser Award for Professional Development in Genetics from the Genetics Society of America! The travel award was granted to 10 Spring 2022 graduate student and postdoc candidates, and supports attendance to conventions.

With support from this award, Vladimir attended the C. elegans Metabolism, Aging, Pathogenesis, and Stress (MAPS 2022) meeting in Madison, WI in July 2022, where he gave a talk highlighting his and others’ recent findings from the lab, and also gave a poster presenting his unpublished research.”
