Mosalaganti Lab Life


Huge congratulations to Qianqian Ma for receiving the Klatskin-Sutker Discovery Fund!!! We are all so happy and excited for you!

Huge congratulations to Renaldo Sutanto for passing his Checkpoint 2 Candidacy exam!!!! We are so happy for you!!!

Welcome to our newest graduate students: Tyler Brant and Kimberly Edicha!

Tyler completed his Biology undergraduate degree at Western Colorado University and his master's degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Edinburgh. He will be co-mentored with Dr. David Sherman and he will be working on researching the structural biology and cell biology of biosynthetic pathway proteins (especially polyketide synthases) in prokaryotes. 

Kimberly completed her bachelor's degree in Professional Biochemistry at Eastern Michigan University where she conducted research in Dr. Steven Backues' lab on proteins associated with selective autophagy. She then joined Dr. Phyllis Hanson's lab here at UMich as a Research Technician investigatng the mechanisms underlying the membrane stress response. She is excited to join the Mosalaganti lab and use structural and biochemical approaches to study proteins involved in mitochondrial fission at membrane contact sites. 

Welcome to you both!!

Welcome our newest Research Lab Specialist Senior Durga Attili!

Durga received his M.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Eastern Michigan University. He worked for several years in industry. His previous research focused on: isolation of exosomes from cultured astrocytes, from blood obtained from bipolar and undiagnosed individuals, investigating astrocyte-derived exosomes composition and function in bipolar disorder, and growing cerebral organoids from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). He will be working in both the Mosalaganti lab and the Barmada lab. 

Welcome to the lab!

Congratulations Renaldo for passing his checkpoint 1 candidacy exam!!!!

We want to congratulate and welcome our very own Matthew Chang for his new role in the lab! He started in May 2021 as an undergrad student working with us, and now that he has graduated he officially joined the lab as our new Research Lab Tech!! 

Congratulations to Matthew Chang for winning an award for his outstanding poster at the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2023 conference!!

Huge congratulations to Renaldo Sutanto for receiving the Rackham Graduate Student Research Award!!!

Huge congratulations to Martin Fernandez for not only passing his Biophysics checkpoint exam BUT he also received the T32 Training Grant!! Congratulations!!!

Congratulations Jiameng Zong for passing her Biophysics checkpoint 2 exam!!! We are so happy for you!
