The physiological effects of alcohol on the brain and motor function have been studied extensively for decades. In low doses, alcohol causes euphoria and reduces anxiety, while in higher doses it impairs cognition and balance, and increases response time. Long-term consumption of alcohol is associated with changes in memory and alcohol-related learning, which play important roles in the development of alcohol use disorder. Dr. Philipp Mews, a CAMB graduate from the Genetics and Gene Regulation (now Genetics and Epigenetics) sub-program, explored the link between alcohol metabolism, gene expression, and alcohol-related learning behaviors, and recently publ...

A person is diagnosed with a blood cancer in the United States every 3 minutes. In 2019, blood cancer is expected to make up 10% of all new cancer cases diagnosed in the country. While chemotherapy remains the standard of care for blood cancer patients, hematopoietic stem cell transplant (also called bone marrow transplant) has improved the survival rate for some of these cancers from 0% to nearly 80%. Bone marrow transplant is a complex procedure where the patient’s damaged hematopoietic stem cells are completely removed with radiation and chemotherapy, and replaced with healthy stem cells from a matched bone marrow donor.

Dr. Rinho Kim started his Ph.D. in the Fall of 2010 as part of the Genetics and Epigenetics graduate group. He joined Dr. Klaus Kaestner’s lab for his thesis work in studying the epigenetic regulation of intestinal stem cell differentiation. Dr. Kim was always interested in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and started working on developing his wet and dry lab skills in the field early on in his thesis project.

After graduating in the fall of 2016, Dr. Kim wanted to apply his skills to human disease research. He also wanted to explore opportunities in Europe, having spent the previous 8.5 years in the US after moving here from South Korea. He t...
