It was great to have Nicolette in the lab for her rotation this summer (and for her literature study this spring) and we wish her well as classes start this fall!
Congratulations to Alyssa for having her abstract "Biliatresone, a toxic model of biliary atresia in animals, causes reversible damage to extrahepatic bile ducts and peribiliary glands, and its toxicity is mitigated equivalently by adult and neonatal hepatocytes" to the AASLD Annual Meeting (November, Boston) accepted for an oral presentation, with an associated travel grant!
The lab is sad to say goodbye to our two phenomenal USSP undergrads, Rocky Giwa (Fisk) and Abby Loneker (Pitt). It was a fantastic summer and they both did great research! Both are always welcome back, and we wish them the best in their senior years.
The lab thanks Steve Caliari for collaborating over the last few years, and wishes him well as he moves to UVA and sets up his own lab!
Congratulations to Orit and Likang for successful poser presentations at the recent FASEB Liver Biology and Pathobiology meeting in West Palm Beach, FL. Congrats also to Likang for her talk at the PSOC@Penn symposium on July 25, and to Abby for her poster presentation at the same meeting.
We wish Orit and Shannon good luck as they move on to the next phase of their careers – Orit as a faculty member with her own lab at the Sackler Children's Hospital in Tel Aviv, and Shannon as a graduate student at the University of Maryland!
