This is Ali’s first birthday as a PhD! Now that he’s a postdoc instead of grad student, his birthday cake has been upgraded with more candles.
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:

The thesis committee members all voted Yay after the presentation, so now we have Dr. Yesilkanal! Continue reading “A PhD is Born!”
