Outreach programs are essential for sparking young students’ interest in scientific research. Spreading the knowledge, importance, and awareness of biomedical research is a passion that CAMB-GGR alumnus David Garbe has been pursuing as an outreach educator at the Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research (PSBR) for the past year.

David began his scientific training in the laboratory of Dr. Greg Bashaw, where he studied developmental axon guidance in the central nervous system of fruit flies. After defending his thesis in 2007, he worked for the pharmaceutical company Wyeth for a couple of years. While he was there, Wyeth was acquired by Pfizer. During...

Part I. GET-UP Constitutional Referendum

The last GET-UP general meeting of the Spring semester was held on May 9, 2017. The meeting outlined GET-UP’s intention to hold a mail-in ballot to student addresses (using the most recent mailing address on Penn InTouch) and the proposed bargaining unit consisting of School of Arts and Sciences, Biomedical Graduate Studies, School of Design, Graduate School of Education, Nursing, and Social Policy and Practice, as well as a referendum on and ultimate approval of amendments to the GET-UP Constitution [1].

These amendments included:

1. Introduction of a “No Harm” Clause.

No graduate student receiving a fellowship can...

Since March of this year graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania have come to hear the truth about the state of their work and support. Two truths, really. The first - graduate students can have everything they need. The second - nothing they need is theirs to have. This Dickensian dichotomy becomes apparent as discussion swirls around the question, should “[I] hereby join Graduate Employees Together at the University of Pennsylvania (GET-UP) and authorize GET-UP to represent me for the purposes of collective bargaining with the University of Pennsylvania?” (1)

The ambitious renewal of the Penn graduate student collective bargaining movement of...

Metabolic flexibility and rewiring is a distinctive feature of the cellular stress response and oncogenesis. The staggering breadth of adaptive pathways simultaneously promises a wealth of therapeutic targets while also acting as obstacles to effective therapies. Therefore, interest centers on linchpin metabolic actors as accessible handles for throttling cellular growth and survival. This idea is exemplified by a study appearing in the October 2016 edition of Cell Reports by Steven Zhao, fourth-year graduate student in the Cancer Biology program in the laboratory of Dr. Kathryn Wellen.

The Wellen laboratory studies the pathways of production and utilizati...

The Cell and Molecular Biology (CAMB) program spans a daunting breadth of biological inquiry, with students and investigators participating across six dynamic and complementary programs. This diversity is exemplified by the research of Ellen Elliott, recent alumna of the Developmental, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (DSRB) program and the Kaestner laboratory. Her work integrates the methods and concepts of regenerative biology, organismal development, physiology, and epigenetic regulation to investigate the role of DNA methylation in mammalian intestinal epithelia. In the January 2016 issue of eLife, Ellen and colleagues present that the DNA methyltra...
