I'm excited for the upcoming workshop at the Institute of Molecular Biology in Mainz, Germany -- the line-up of speakers draws from all over the world, from Spain to Japan, and everywhere in between. Thanks to co-organizers Eva Wolf and Achim Kramer for putting together what looks to be a fantastic meeting. See you in Germany!
Thanks to Chandralal Hewage and the scientific organizing committee of the 28th International Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems (ICMRBS) for their invitation to speak in the session on the use of NMR spectroscopy to probe Biological Systems. We love NMR here in the Partch lab! It was exciting hearing about recent advances in pulse sequences to study intrinsically disordered regions, which abound in the clock proteins we study. The science was great (amazi
A hearty congratulations to Gian Carlo Parico, who was awarded a predoctoral Gilliam Fellowship from HHMI! This program seeks to support the development of scientific leadership among its awardees and provide resources for their commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the sciences. 45 Fellows were awarded this year, including two at UCSC: Carlo and Stefany Rubio (Lindsay Hinck Lab). Congrats to both of you!
Thanks to the 2018 Program Planning Committee of the 32nd Annual Protein Society meeting for an invitation to speak this year. It was fun being part of a one-two punch of Kai proteins in the session on triggered conformational changes with my friend Mike Rust. Lots of amazing talks and fun times in Boston!
I can't believe that another summer has already passed, which means that we've had yet another fun week with our SRI Interns! Thanks to all the students involved for a great week learning about protein structure and x-ray crystallography. Many thanks to Yuli and Xingci as well as for their awesome powers of organization in keeping this great program running.
