The lab is excited to welcome Huan Zhang, PhD to the lab! Huan completed her graduate work at the Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her graduate work was focused on evolution of transcriptional regulatory networks of phytopathogenic bacteria and bacterial resistance to osmostress. She identified and co-first authored a manuscript in Nature Communications on: Proteolysis of histidine kinase VgrS sequesters two-component signalling and promotes bacterial resistance to osmostress. We're excited for her to transition to work on pancreatic cancer and leverage her expertise in RNA biology towards new projects in the lab investigating the role of RNA binding proteins in pancreatic cancer.
