Reed Lab member, Mengting Su, got accepted to Yale University School of Public Health (MPH in Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases) with a $32,000 Horstmann Scholarship, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health (MPH in Infectious Disease Epidemiology), Tufts School of Medicine (MPH in Epidemiology and Biostatistics), Boston University School of Public Health (MPH in Epidemiology and Biostatistics) with a merit scholarship of 35% towards tuition ($28,728), NYU GHP (MPH in Epidemiology) with a $12,000 scholarship, Emory University Rollins School of Public Health (MPH in Epidemiology), and GWU Milken Institute School of Public Health (MPH in Epidemiology) with a $16,000 Dean’s scholarship.
After an exciting season of receiving acceptances and merit scholarships from four of the graduate schools to which she applied, Su has finally made a decision. We're extremely happy to announce that Su will attend Yale University’s School of Public Health starting in the Fall. Su will be completing a Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in epidemiology of microbial diseases. The thing that made Yale feel right for her was the dedicated infectious disease department, as well as the low student faculty ratio. Su is also really interested in the emerging infections program.
Reed Lab doctoral student, Vishal Oza, successfully defended his PhD today! He will start his postdoctoral fellowship working on multiomics data analysis with Dr. Brittany Lasseigne at the Department of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology at UAB Medical School, in January.
Vishal Oza, Reed Lab member and PhD Candidate, managed to incorporate Game of Thrones references and other humorous bits into his research seminar "Can a computational biologist fix a metabolome? or what I learned doing a PhD in metabolomics."
The Genomics Education Partnership was recently awarded two five-year grants- a $2.2 million award from the National Institutes of Health and a $1.99 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
Reed Lab members and a host of family/friends gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of departing lab members Katie Sandlin, Dr. Clare Scott-Chialvo, Kelsey Lowman, and Olivia Fish.
Congratulations to Reed Lab member, Katie Sandlin, for successfully defending her master's thesis: "Evolution of the Insulin Signaling Pathway across Metazoans!"
