Rafi Kohen successfully defended his thesis “Small Hairpin RNA Interference in Neurons: RNA Sequencing Reveals Robust Synaptic Regulation Independent of Primary Target” on March 13 at the University of Michigan. He remained in the Giger lab through the summer to finishing and submitting his manuscript. Rafi is now off to Europe! We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors!
Tony Robinson was awarded a T32 training grant through the Department of Cellular and Molecular Biology. A job well done!
We said a bittersweet goodbye to Ashley Kalinski, PhD as she starts her position as Assistant Professor at Ball State University. We wish her the best of luck! Check Out her website at https://acurren4.wixsite.com/kalinski-lab/lab-members
The Giger lab is very excited to announce the addition of two new graduate students, Hannah Hafner and Tony Robinson! Hannah has joined us through the department of Cell and Developmental Biology and Tony through the department of Cellular and Molecular Biology. We look forward to working with you both.
