2017 Commencement at BU!

Here are the graduates and faculty of the Physiology & Biophysics Department as photographed by David L. Keough: Conragtulations!

Congratulations to Andrew Bogorad!

Congratulations to Andrew for a successful defense of his PhD thesis entitled; “Novel Mechanisms of EIF2B Action and Regulation by EIF2Alpha Phosphoralization”.

Congratulations to Madhurima Das!

Congratulations to Madhurima for a successful defense of her PhD thesis entitled; “Structural Stability and Lipid Interactions in the Misfolding of Human Apolipoprotein A-I: What makes the Protein Amyloidogenic?”

Congratulations to Minjing Liu!

Congratulations to Minjing for a successful defense of her PhD thesis entitled; “Structural Studies of Apolipoprotein A-I and ATP-Binding Cassette A1 and their Roles in Nascent High Density Lipoprotein Biogenesis”.

Nick Frame has his first paper in press!

Structure of Serum Amyloid A Suggests a Mechanism for Selective Lipoprotein Binding and Functions: SAA as a Hub in Macromolecular Interaction Networks” by Nicholas Frame and Olga Gursky has been accepted for publication in FEBS Letters.

A new podcast from PhD candidate Daniel Taub!

A new podcast from PhD candidate Dan Taub, discusses what we learn from model systems. Listen to him tell us about yeast and frogs – more to come. Here’s the link to the podcast.

Madhurima Das is the first co-author in a featured publication in the Journal of Molecular Biology!
