Congratulations, Kaitlyn and Leandro – CCNY grads

Catching up on some great news from earlier in the summer – congratulations to both Kaitlyn Toy and Leandro Pimentel Marcelino, two CCNY Biochemistry graduates who'd done undergraduate honors dissertations in my group earlier in their careers. Kaitlyn, who was in the Macaulay Honors College and won the department's Ward Medal for best academic record, did her [...]

(Phot)ographs of a plant light sensor: Hart and Gardner JBC 2021

In the lab's first JBC Review, Jaynee Hart and I have just published an overview of the current state of the field's understanding of the phototropin class of blue light photoreceptors.  Jaynee and I opted to pitch this as a fairly broad overview, noting that JBC's readership is almost as broad as the group [...]

New lab website

OK.  Finally retired a well-worn website that started as a built-from-HTML-scratch version in the last millennium and reformatted with more modern tools over ten years ago.  The jump to WordPress was less painful than feared, although we are still working to incorporate the fan-favorite Quote Of The Day (which will soon have its own [...]
