Congratulations to our PhD students, Mehraj Awal and Nick Frame, who successfully passed their qualifying exams in June 2016!
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 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.

New review article published on cellular membrane and lipid changes that occur upon infection with poliovirus by Jie E. Yang, Evan D. Rossignol, Esther Bullitt
The Role of Electron Microscopy in Studying the Continuum of Changes in Membranous Structures during Poliovirus Infection Viruses 2015, 7(10), 5305-5318; doi:10.3390/v7102874 (registering DOI) http://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/7/10/2874 Poliovirus infection results in the proliferation of membranous vesicles. The structure and function of these vesicles vary spatially and temporally throughout the viral replication cycle.
