Payal’s paper “Metabolically activated adipose tissue macrophages link obesity to triple-negative breast cancer” was just published in Journal of Experimental Medicine! The paper is a great showcase of her thesis project.
Students and faculty members enjoyed the a cappella concert last Friday by the Histones group. The last song was dedicated to Ali, the founder of the Histones. We will truly miss him when he graduates!
Highlights from the concert:
Huge CONGRATULATIONS to Ali for becoming a doctor! His thesis defense, titled “Discovery of anti-metastatic therapies guided by the physiological suppressor Raf Kinase Inhibitory Protein”, was attended by professors, friends, and family. Ali’s thesis defense went through smoothly this morning, with several jokes, funny stories, and a very moving acknowledgement. The thesis committee members all voted Yay after the presentation, so now we have Dr. Yesilkanal! Continue reading “A PhD is Born!”
Congratulations to Ali for receiving the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation Elaine Ehrman Award!
We are so proud of Payal for successfully defending her thesis! She is Dr. Payal Tiwari now!
