May 1, 2016: Congrats and farewell to Mary Irwin who will be moving to the DC area to begin a position at the FDA in the Center for Tobacco Products. Over the course of just over five years as a postdoc, Mary authored three first author publications (with another in preparation) and was coauthor on two additional manuscripts. In 2012 she was awarded a prestigious National Research Service Award F32 Fellowship, which was funded on its first submission. Best wishes to her and her family as she settles into Maryland and begins a new chapter of her career.
May 2, 2016: Congrats to Cavan Bailey, who received the Center for Cancer Epigenetics Scholar Award! He wasone of two graduate students selected for this one year award from the MD Anderson Center for Cancer Epigenetics.
May 3, 2016: Congrats to Margaret Raber, who was chosen from six eminently qualified applicants for the R25 Training Grant in Cancer Prevention for Predoctoral Fellows. The Cancer Prevention Research Training Program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is designed to expand the perspective of the trainees by moving them from their base of strength in a particular specialty and to equip them with additional knowledge of the other cancer prevention and control disciplines.
May 23, 2016: We welcome a new graduate student, Luisa Coronel, to the lab.
