Sofiat, Kyrionna and Lakai are on their way to Indianapolis to attend the 2018 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS). They are all presenting posters during the conference and are just part of the large contingent of undergraduates that Howard University is sending.
The Allen lab has been joined by 3 new undergraduate researchers this Fall 2018 semester. Welcome to the lab Jeandele, Donjayla, and Marvin. We can’t wait to see all the research you accomplish!
In July 2018, Ruby Boating defended her Ph.D.!
She will be starting a post-doctoral fellowship at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine in August.
Dr. Allen is now a tenured, Associate Professor.
Thank you to everyone in the Allen lab for all their hard work that led to this accomplishment.
Sara graduated this May and is off to start a research technician position in the laboratory of Dr. Brent Derry in Toronto. Best of luck Sara! We are so proud of you!
The lab has a new graduate student now. Welcome Raina Rhoades! Raina is beginning to investigate some of the suppressors that came out of the 2014 wee-1.3(RNAi) suppression screen paper.
Ruby won a travel award through FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) and the MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers) program to fund her travel to the 2015 International C. elegans meeting in Los Angeles, California this summer.
We are very proud of her!
It seems Ruby did an awesome job both in making her HU Research Day poster and presenting her data! She once again won an award for her poster in the Biological & Biomedical Sciences Graduate Student Category. Congrats Ruby! Keep up the good work.
Anna’s paper that completes her post-doctoral work was recently published in G3: Genes Genomes Genetic in December 2014. Take a look if you have a chance!
