I recently sat down with Cesar de la Fuente, a newly appointed Assistant Professor in the Departments of Microbiology, Psychiatry, and Bioengineering. Cesar leads a diverse group interested in using multiple approaches, including in-silico models and synthetic biology, to address global health challenges. Below is a paraphrased transcript of our discussion regarding his time at Penn, goals for the future, and advice for current trainees.

JG: Could you describe some of the projects in your lab

CF: Our main goal is to develop new molecular tools and medicines using computers. We are currently focusing on developing new antibiotics to help address the global h...

I recently sat down with Dr. Will Bailis from the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. A relatively new faculty member and alum of our very own Immunology Graduate Group. I had a few questions that needed answering.

Q: Take me through your academic timeline

I grew up on the Mainline right outside of Philadelphia and attended Vassar College, where I was originally interested in studying history and foreign policy. Eventually, after not getting into some of the summer positions I wanted, I sent out tons of emails to labs at the major schools in Philadelphia and the only person to respond was Dr. Susan Ross at Penn. I ended up working in her lab fo...

Dr. Melike Lakadamyali joined the Penn community in early 2017 after moving her lab from the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona to the Perelman School of Medicine. She is an assistant professor in the Department of Physiology, with a joint appointment in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology. Dr. Lakadamyali is affiliated both with the Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics and the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Groups.

Dr. Lakadamyali completed her Ph.D. in physics at Harvard University with Dr. Xiaowei Zhuang, whose lab developed super-resolution STORM microscopy. For her thesis work, Dr. Lakadamyali developed live-cell imaging te...

“Why get up in the morning and fight for grant money and all this? We get to see things that no human has seen before and learn stuff that’s not in any textbook. We get to work with talented students…and watch them grow into scientists!”

This is what excites Dr. Shawn C. Little, PhD., a newly appointed Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the Perelman School of Medicine.

Shawn is no stranger to Penn. He completed his doctoral thesis with Dr. Mary C. Mullins in 2008,on the role of transforming growth factor beta signaling in early zebrafish development. His work elucidated how bone morphogenetic protein gradients conferr...

As a graduate student in the lab of gene therapy pioneer Dr. Dusty Miller at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, Andy was at the forefront of the fast-paced field of retrovirology. There, he took on multiple projects, first dabbling in AAV-mediated gene therapy, and then honing in on the role of cancer stem cells using a mouse model of a unique Jaagsiekte retroviral-driven lung cancer. Intriguingly, the envelope protein of this retrovirus alone is sufficient to induce pulmonary adenocarcinoma. As his thesis work developed, Andy became more and more interested in cancer stem cells and factors underlying differences in lung cell susceptibility to the...

Matthew Good, Ph.D., is a recently appointed Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell and Development Biology at the Perelman School of Medicine with a secondary faculty appointment in the Department of Bioengineering at the School of Engineering and Applied Science. In addition to being part of the CAMB graduate group, Dr. Good and his lab are members of the Bioengineering graduate group and the Pennsylvania Muscle Institute (PMI).

Dr. Good completed his Ph.D at the University of California, San Francisco as a member of Dr. Wendell Lim’s lab. There, Dr. Good utilized in vitro reconstitution of MAPK signaling to study how information is faithfully tra...
