3rd year graduate student Tiffany Baiocchi has passed her written and oral exams for Biochemistry. This means that she is now a PhD candidate. Way to go Tiffany!
Well, we were finally able to round up most of the lab and take a lab picture. From left to right, starting with the back row we have Paul Medinda, Tiffany Baiocchi, Adler Dillman, Carter Gerke, and Kassandra Kin. From left to right on the front row there is Sudarshan Aryal, Dihong Lu, Sowgand Bashiri, Lauren Braun, Claudia Sepulveda, and Dennis Chang. The picture is missing Lauren Allison, Grant Lee, and our visiting scholar, Keyun Zhang.
Dennis Chang and Tiffany Baiocchi recently participated in the SCEP meeting here at UCR. They each gave a talk and enjoyed learning about ongoing research in eukaryotic pathogens. We’re definitely planning to attend this next year (http://scep.ucr.edu/).
Dillman Lab website is now live. It all started when Adler Dillman became an assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside in February of 2015. Currently the lab has been active for nearly 2 years and boasts 2 postdoctoral fellows, 2 graduate students, and 7 undergraduate students currently working in the lab.
