Ibraheem wins the 2020 Student Research Achievement Award at BPS annual meeting in San Diego.
September 2020: Banerjee Lab is looking for a postdoc! Please reach out to us if you would like to work on Biomolecular Condensates with us! Details of the job posting is below: http://ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/26206
August 2020: A new Preprint is up! In this manuscript, superstar graduate student Taran Kaur reports her latest findings on the stability and patterning of coexisting condensates in multi-component protein-RNA mixtures. Experimental efforts led by @Taranpr75155996. MD simulations done by @potoyangroup. Link to the bioRxiv article is here.
August 2020: Graduate student Ibraheem Alshareedah presents his cool work on the membrane-less hollow condensates made of IDPs and RNAs at IDPSIG virtual symposium. The talk was well received!
August 2020: We are excited to share that we have been awarded with an MIRA (R35) grant from NIH/NIGMS to study Protein-RNA condensates. We will be hiring lab tech, postdoc and graduate students. Job postings will go out soon! Stay tuned!
June 2020: Our “hollow condensate” paper that is now available online @PNASNews. In this paper, we show that protein−RNA complexes can create lipid-free vesicle-like enclosures by phase separation. Link to the paper here.
- May 2020: Ibraheem, Dr. Mahdi Moosa, and Dr. Priya Banerjee received word that their work with the Potoyan group at Iowa State University on ordered hollow condensates has been accepted for publication in PNAS!
- Liz accepted to Cornell for her graduate studies, starting in Fall 2020! Congratulations Liz! She also will have the Dean’s Excellence Fellowship — this fellowship helps encourage diversity among Cornell’s graduate community & will completely fund her through her 1st year of studies.
- Hannah won the Goldwater Scholarship in Spring 2019 — more from her on this achievement here.
Dr. Priya Banerjee gave a webinar, hosted by LUMICKS via zoom, on Liquid-liquid Phase Transition of Intrinsically Disordered RNA-binding Proteins:
