Congratulations to Eray on an extraordinary thesis defense!
This initiative funds a collaborative effort between the Joe Pogliano lab and 7 other labs at UC San Diego, Yale, and the J. Craig Venter Institute. The consortium investigates nucleus-forming jumbo phage for phage therapy applications. See the article here.
Eray Enustun and Emily Armbruster were recognized with endowed fellowships at the annual Biological Sciences-Salk Institute Retreat. Eray received the Goeddel Endowed Fellowship and Emily received the McElroy Fellowship. Read more here.
Congratulations Eray and Emily!
Work from our collaboration with the labs of Elizabeth Villa, Kevin Corbett, and Rommie Amaro was featured in an article from UC San Diego Today and a press release by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). This work investigates formation of the phage nuclear shell during 201φ2-1 infection of Pseudomonas chlororaphis (Laughlin & Deep et al. Nature 2022).
Congratulations to first authors Tom & Amar, and Pogliano lab co-authors Amy, Eray, Kanika, Erica, and Emily!
Arica joins the lab as a postdoc and will be co-advised by Elizabeth Villa (UCSD, HHMI).
This week, the lab attended ASM Microbe in Washington, DC. We heard many great talks, especially “Identifying Key Components of Phage Nucleus System” by our very own Eray Enustun! Amy Prichard also presented a poster on jumbo bacteriophage diversity. Congratulations Eray and Amy!
Congratulations to Erica on a fantastic thesis defense!
Annie joined the lab as a new postdoc, working on a collaboration with Elizabeth Villa’s lab.
