Our undergraduate student Sophia applied and received a UROP award for her work in our lab. It’s great to see that her work and efforts are being recognized and we thank the BU UROP program for their support! Sophia for the win!
On Thursday August 11th Laila Norford and Cecilia ‘Ceci’ McCormick presented their summer projects at the BRITE Mini-Symposium in the Kilachand Center. Laila and Cécé both joined the Dries lab this summer as part of the BRITE REU program. Together with graduate students in the lab they worked on intricate problems in spatial data biology and performed exceptionally well. Their presence in the Dries lab will surely be missed and we wish them all the best in their early scientific careers! ...
On Friday August 5th, the Dries lab said Goodbye to our lab manager Emma Kelley. Emma was a part of the Dries lab for 2 years and made quite an impact. She will be starting a masters program in genetic counseling at University of Michigan. We would like to wish Emma the best of luck in her future endeavors.
The BU/BMC Hematology-Oncology Section hosted its first Summer Outreach program this year. Boston high schoolers with an interest in science were recommended by their teachers to join our floor for a week, learning about biomedical research. Dries lab members taught the high schoolers about DNA replication and cancer cell development and taught pipetting and H&E staining. It was great to be a part of this week, break down misconceptions about working in science, and meet future scientist...
Blog post coming soom….. Our new Merscope platform arrived today from Vizgen, the first in-situ spatial transcriptomics platform at BU. We can’t wait to start experiments!
The 28th Annual Henry I. Russek Student Achievement Day was held on May 6 and is an annual celebration of the work done by PhD students in the Graduate Medical Sciences Program at BUSM. This year, 3rd year Dries lab student George Chen took home a second place prize for his work generating and analyzing a 3D breast cancer dataset. George won a prize and everyone else got free lunch, so it was a great day all around. George and Ruben strike a power pose
