Updates from the lab
The 2022 Vilcek Prize for Excellence in Biotechnology is awarded to @kkariko. The award recognizes the Hungarian-born biochemist for her research discoveries that led to the development of #mRNA vaccines for #COVID19. https://vilcek.co/vfp2022karikoto #ScienceTwitter #WomeninSTEM
Thrilled to announce that my lab will be moving to the Chemistry Department @scrippsresearch in San Diego later this summer! 🥳Interested in antibiotics development, genetic code expansion and/or improving carbon fixation? We’re actively recruiting on all fronts! Plz RT 🙏
Academic Twitter is all about 1) complaining about academia or 2) celebrating academic achievements. I think I should tweet about somewhere in between. #AverageAcademia. My day was ok. I wrote some code, but I didn’t finish it. Lunch was enjoyable.
Congrats to Yifeng and Ee Lui and our collaborators Suwen and Yan! This work was inspired by Dr. Steve Benner’s lecture and started after a casual dinner conversation with him in Singapore in May 2019. What an exciting journey it is! https://science.sciencemag.org/content/372/6541/512/tab-figures-data
