Amy DeMicco and Matthew Harms—CB and DSRB alumni, respectively—both work for AstraZeneca in Sweden. Amy and Matthew bring interesting perspectives about the transition from academia to industry, finding jobs with a significant other, and living and working abroad.

The start of the journey: Amy completed her PhD in Craig Bassing’s lab (July 2015), studying how specific gene expression programs promote both normal lymphocyte function and suppression of malignant transformation. Matt completed his thesis and a brief post-doctoral fellowship in Patrick Seale’s lab. There, he investigated the role of a transcription factor, PRDM16, in the identity and function...

Animal models of disease are crucial to understanding disease progression in humans. In a recent article published in the American Journal of Primatology, Hannah Barbian (pictured below), a fifth-year MVP student in Beatrice Hahn’s lab, exemplified this concept. The Hahn lab researches the disease progression and evolution of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A long-standing collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute and Gombe National Park in Tanzania has supplied the lab with a breadth of chimpanzee samples. The Hahn lab previously used chimpanzee samples to demonstrate that HIV-1, the etiologic agent of the...

How did life first appear on Earth? What can the origin of life tell us about life’s meaning? In their new book “A Brief History of Creation”, journalist Bill Mesler and organic chemist H. James Cleaves II offer a thorough and compelling narrative of the history of man’s search for answers to questions as old as mankind itself.

The book begins with an interesting -- though perhaps overly detailed -- account of early religious and philosophical beliefs on life’s creation, and then proceeds to examine contemporary scientific theories on the origin of life, making a case for why the scientific method is the best approach to tackle this question. It ends with...

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...
