Cuervo Lab Great News to celebrate!!!
Esperanza Arias received the prestigious Fulbright Postdoctoral Research Grant to study the relation between autophagic dysfunction and the stress response in aging.
Susmita Kaushik again on the spot light!! Part of her Thesis work has been published in Nature and it received considerable attention from the scientific community and different press media (including a great summary in the Spanish press). This is a collaborative study with Dr. Rajat Singh from the group of Dr. Mark J. Czaja also at Einstein.
Susmita Kaushik is in a roll!! She has received the Weintraub award for graduate students. This is a very competitive award that is given to 12 outstanding graduate students in the whole country!! She will participate in a two day scientific symposium at the Hutchinson Center's Robert W. Day Campus, where she will present her thesis work. The students were selected on the basis of quality, originality and significance of their work. She obviously has it all!
Susmita Kaushik received one of the four 2009 Julius Marmur Research Award for her research work. She will present her work at the 13th Annual Julius Marmur Symposium on March 23, 2009. Don't miss it!.
Urmi Bandyopadhyay defended her thesis on November 3, 2008. She is from now on Dr. Bandyopadhyay!! Our third Ph from the lab!
Susmita Kaushik has bee nominated co-chair of the first Gordon Research Seminar in Biology of Aging, that will take place in Le Diablerets, Switzerland in September 2009. Susmita is responsible for the selection of speakers, organization of discussions and for fund raising to put together the best possible program. The symposium allow students that intend to participate in the Gordon Conference to present their work in a smaller forum and receive direct feedback from the leaders in the field, and will provide them the necessary background to promote their active participation in the Conference.
