Happy new year from Mosalaganti lab
Mosalaganti lab wishes you a happy new year. Unlike 2020, we sincerely hope that 2021 brings health and serenity to the world.
Jaimin Rana joined Mosalaganti lab as a graduate rotation student. He has a Bachelors degree in Molecular Biology & Biochemistry (Rutgers, The state University of New Jersey) and a Masters degree in Biotechnology (Northeastern University). At the Mosalaganti lab, he is interested in studying role of oligomerization in lysosomal membrane transport proteins using biophysical and biochemical techniques.
Amanda was selected as 2021's Michigan Postdoctoral Pioneer Fellow to explore high-resolution in-situ snapshots of SARS-CoV-2 infection of neurons in collaboration with Barmada lab at the Department of Neurology, U-M. The awardees will be appointed for three consecutive years with a stipend that is set at 120% of the NIH scale for postdoctoral fellows. Woot! Woot!
Vikas was awarded 2021's Klatskin-Sutker Discovery Fund to study lysosomal membrane transport proteins that are potential drug targets against metabolic disorders, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Woot! Woot! The award provides $25000 for a year to support high-risk high-reward projects that are unlikely to be funded through traditional grants.
We are seeking a lab manager (research laboratory specialist). Applications are due by July 27, 2021. Learn more and apply.
Matthew Chang joined Mosalaganti lab as an Undergraduate Volunteer. He is a Biomedical Engineering Junior at the College of Engineering, University of Michigan. At the Mosalaganti lab, he is interested in learning cryo-electron microscopy with a specific focus on imaging of organelles and their membrane contact sites.
Vikas Navratna joined Mosalaganti lab today as a Research Investigator. He has a PhD in Molecular Biophysics from Dr. B. Gopal's lab at the Indian Institute of Science, and got his postdoctoral training in membrane protein structural biology in Dr. Eric Gouaux's lab at the Vollum Institute.
