Congratulations to Flora Rutaganira, a former undergrad in the Shaw lab, for being selected as one of twelve HHMI Hanna Gray Fellows this year! This fellowship serves to recognize the excellent science fellows perform early in their career, and provides funding through a postdoc and into early tenure-track faculty positions.
The Shaw group bids farewell to postdoc Jesus Cordova Guerrero, undergraduate Ada Kwong, and summer researchers Barry Rich and Kris Mckendall.
Jesus has accepted a position as a professor at Cal Lutheran, Ada has been accepted into the chemistry Ph.D. program at Northwestern University, and Barry and Kris return to Rhodes and XULA, respectively. Although we’re really looking forward to see the great things they do in the future, we can’t help but be a little sad to see them go.
The Shaw lab welcomes three summer undergraduate researchers: Barry Rich, Shuyu Meng, and Kris MkKendall.
