- Emily Weinert, a graduate student with Steve Rokita, was awarded First Prize for the best oral
presentation by a Young Investigator in the Chemical
Toxicology Division at the 230th ACS National Meeting in Washington DC, August 2005. Her
presentation, entitled "Kinetic and Trapping Studies of
2'-Deoxynucleoside Alkylation by a Quinone Methide" described
her recent work to understand the molecular basis for the
unusual profile of products formed by reaction between this
reactive intermediate and DNA. Quinone methides have
previously been implicated as key intermediates in the
metabolic activation of a number of carcinogens and
Sept. 2006 Update: Dr. Weinert will be joining Michael
Marletta's lab at UC Berkeley for her post-doc. 2011 update: Emily is now on the faculty at Emory University.
- Dr. Faith Hays, a 2006 graduate from Dr. Fenselau's group, worked
on mass spectrometric approaches to ribosome biogenesis. She has
recently joined an ambitious new
joint effort between NIST and NCI that aims to systematize proteomics
techniques used in research and diagnostics.
- Aaron Haeusler was a 2011 graduate from the Kahn lab, now a postdoc at Johns Hopkins.
