The Griffin lab is grateful to be back at the bench after the COVID-19 lockdown…albeit on staggered shifts and with plenty of social distancing for safety!
Courtney is honored to have been named the Scott Zarrow Chair in Biomedical Research at OMRF’s spring board meeting. Special thanks to the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, which endowed this chair in memory of Tulsa attorney and philanthropist Scott Zarrow.
Congratulations to Sarah Colijn for her new cover-featured article in Disease Models & Mechanisms about an unexpected athero-protective role for RIPK3 in endothelial cells and macrophages.
We are excited to welcome two new graduate students to the lab: Bridget Parrish and Rahul Rajala. Thanks to you both for choosing to train in the Griffin Lab!
Congrats to Charmain Fernando for her new AHA Postdoc Fellowship on the role of RIPK3 in ischemia/reperfusion injury…way to go, Charmain!
The lab is just back from Vascular Biology 2019, where we had loads of fun learning great science and reconnecting with old friends and colleagues. Congrats to Siqi for winning a poster award…well deserved!!
Big congrats to Sarah Colijn, who successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis today! We are so grateful for Sarah’s hard work and perseverance over the last 5 years, and we’re wishing her luck as she heads to Washington University to start a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Amber Stratman.
The Griffin lab is excited to welcome its 4th visiting masters student from Poland–Stacy Borawska–via the bioLAB Visiting Research Graduate Traineeship Program. Stacy will be working closely with Matt over the next year studying the impact of peritoneal macrophages on vascular integrity. Thank you, Stacy, for traveling so far to do research with us!
We are delighted to have Abby Williams working in the lab this summer. Abby is a rising freshman at New York University and is spending several weeks helping Melinda study organ-specific roles for endothelial BRG1 and CHD4.
The Griffin lab is pleased to host Kate Wheeler as an OMRF Fleming Scholar this summer. Kate is a rising freshman at the University of Oklahoma and had visited our lab several times during her high school years to learn more about our research. This summer she is working with Siqi on studying novel intracellular […]
