Two papers out!

We have two papers that came out recently (well, technically three, if we include a collaboration)

Our manuscript on pancreatic organogenesis in the eye was published in Islets, and our paper on the control of islet fate maturation by RBP-Jκ just came out in Nature Scientific Reports!

Jamie Sacksner won best presentation!

Jamie Sacksner, our UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program) student has won’t he Best Presentation award at the UROP symposium!

Fall 2013 UROP program

New website…

Well, even though we remain close to the Bernal-Mizrachi Lab, it was time to get independent hosting.
The new website will allow us to post updates about the Lab (both on a scientific and on a personal basis) and present the things we are really interested in.

The website is still being put together at this point but should get in a somewhat decent shape soon!
