A new pre-print is out from our lab regarding the increased presence hyaluronan in patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Check it out here: https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.09.11.20191692v1.article-metrics
We have a new lab manager – Sarah Smith has joined us from her previous job managing microbiology lab(s) at Clemson University. We’re super excited to welcome her on board.
for curing a patient with a prosthetic knee infection with a phage/antibiotic cocktail! These are tough cases, typically impossible to cure with antibiotics alone. Go Gina!!
Our newest lab member Sally is off to a fast start! Sally was recently awarded a School of Medicine Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2020-2022. We’re thrilled to have her here at Stanford and in our lab.
Payton successfully defended his thesis, sharing his excellent work on pericellular matrix and antigen presentation. Dr. Marshall will now be working to complete his medical degree at Stanford.
The Harry Shwachman Clinical Investigator Award from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation supports promising physician scientists to help facilitate their transition from postdoctoral training to a career in academic medicine. We’re so proud of Liz and all the great work she’s been doing.
Congratulations to Jonas for being names a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) post-doctoral fellowship grant for his cutting-edge research on phage/mammalian host interactions!
Congratulations to Carlos Medina on his successful thesis defense! His thesis was entitled “TISSUE-RESIDENT MEMORY TR1 CELLS, INTERLEUKIN-10, AND THE EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX IN AIRWAY INFLAMMATION”. Dr. Medina will be pursuing a career promoting inclusiveness & diversity on campus. We couldn’t be prouder.
Hot off the presses! Work by graduate student Carlos Medina, former post-doc Koshika Yadava and the Bollyky lab is out in the journal eLife today. They report that Tr1 cells, a key regulatory cell type that promotes IL-10-based immune tolerance to potential airway allergens, do not contribute to stable tolerogenic memory. This instability may limit efforts to re-establish tolerance in asthma and other disease by expanding Tr1. Read all about it here. Congratulations!!
