Richa graduated in February and was promptly offered a position at Natera as a Medical Science Liaison. Her energy and drive will be deeply missed in the lab.
March was a month full of birthdays in the Van Tine Lab. We celebrated Tony, Lenny, and Jeff as they each turned another year older. Wishing the March boys a year full of happiness, good fortune, and most of all, SCIENCE!
The Van Tine lab is pleased to announce that we are welcoming Lenny Rogers, a first-year student in the Molecular Cell Biology program, as the newest graduate student in our lab. Lenny will be starting out his time in lab with researching the role of lipid biology in arginine starvation in sarcoma. Welcome, Lenny!
We recently published an excellent paper on sarcoma tumors that lack a crucial component of their metabolism that leaves them unable to synthesize their own arginine. By exploiting this weakness, we can design therapies that deprive tumors of their arginine supply, thus “starving” the tumors. This article features the hard work of Jeff Kremer. Visit this link […]
A few members of the Van Tine lab made their way across the sea this week to attend the Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS) annual meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. Bethany, Jeff, Richa, Sara, and Brian himself presented posters on their research, and were met with overwhelming support and interest. We are very excited to implement […]
