The Department of Cell Biology would like to extend a very warm welcome to our newest faculty member, Assistant Professor Dr. Kira Gritsman. Dr. Gritsman got her MD/PhD at New York University School of Medicine, where she performed her PhD research in Dr. Alexander Schier’s lab on the roles of nodal signaling during zebrafish gastrulation and left-right patterning. After an Internal Medicine residency at Columbia University Medical Center, she completed her subspecialty training in Hematology and Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. She did her postdoctoral research in the labs of Dr. Gary Gilliland and Dr. Thomas Roberts at Dana-Farber on the roles of the PI3K/Akt pathway in hematopoiesis and leukemia. She is a recipient of an American Society of Hematology Fellow Scholar Award and a K08 Career Development award from the National Cancer Institute. Her lab's current work continues to focus on signaling pathways in hematopoietic stem cells and leukemic stem cells, and on resistance mechanisms to kinase inhibitors in leukemia.
Dr. Pamela Stanley was awarded with the eighth annual Marshall S. Horwitz, M.D. Faculty Prize for Research Excellence. The prize will be awarded at a community-wide ceremony on Monday, February 3, 2014, during which Dr. Stanley will deliver a lecture, “Glycans that Regulate Development and Notch Signaling,” describing the work that led to her selection. Congratulations to Dr. Pamela Stanley.
