This autumn brings 2 new arrivals, graduate student Alec Downie and GHP postdoc Jerry Nutor. A very hearty welcome to both! The autumn also brings departures of various sorts. Former graduate student Jackie recently started a postdoc with Micaela Martinez at Columbia, to investigate circadian and seasonal rhythms in human immune function. Former postdoc Sarah […]
Members of the lab have been thriving in very public ways of late. For example, the marvelous Jackie successfully defended her Ph.D. this past week!! Photos coming to the gallery soon. And the fantastic Liana recently defended her dissertation proposal, so she became an official doctoral candidate! And last but definitely not least, one of […]
Our lab’s work on worms and germs in rewilded mice, especially a huge experiment led by Jackie, has been getting a lot of TLC lately! For example, Princeton’s Office of the Dean for Research featured a synopsis of our city mouse-country mouse comparisons on the university website. Further afield, the work has been featured in […]
Our collaborative work on human worm-malaria co-infections in Indonesia has recently been featured (together with awesome custom artwork!) on Princeton’s website and subsequently on The Franklin Institute website and in science media in the Asia-Pacific region. We found that competition among parasite species for red blood cells is an important determinant of the outcome of […]
Mid-year, Sarah will be taking up her new job of Assistant Professor of Biology at Claremont McKenna, Pitzer and Scripps Colleges, in sunny California!!! Congratulations, Sarah! Fantastic news for you and the family, though we will miss you!
Various recent and current members of the Graham Group have already had an eventful autumn: 1) Micaela Martinez has departed Princeton, alas, but is now happily launching into her next career phase, on the faculty of Columbia University!! Hearty congratulations, Micaela! 2) Courtney Thomason, after truly heroic mouse-trapping with us in Virginia for several summers, […]
Welcome and best wishes to wee Harriet, who arrived very nearly right on time, early in the morning of 3 May! And congratulations to her proud parents, Sarah and Ross!!
In various important ways, it has been a fantastic autumn for the Graham Group, what with Micaela receiving an NIH Early Independence Award to start her own group at Princeton (!!! go Micaela!!!), Ph.D. Alumna Ann preparing to start a faculty position at Vanderbilt (!!! go Ann!!!), and the arrival of Liana from Macquarie University […]
Micaela’s work in digital epidemiology has recently been featured in Science magazine! By developing Google Trends as an epidemiological tool, she has helped launch an exciting new age of outbreak monitoring for under-reported infectious diseases.
The Ecological Society of America recently challenged scientists to describe their work using only the 1000 most common English words. Sarah mightily rose to the challenge, generating a charming synopsis of life history strategies of parasites as well as the ecological parasitologists that study them! Outstanding job, Sarah!!!
