Systems Biology Of Cell Signaling & Differentiation


Congratulations, Michael!

Congratulations, Michael, on receiving an “Exceptional” rating and the highest possible Impact Score (10) on your NIH NRSA F31 Predoctoral Fellowship application: “Connecting early signaling dynamics to fat cell differentiation using fluorescent biosensors and single cell imaging”. Great job!

Successful launch of Biological Imaging Class!

This spring Mary, Jon Mulholland, Andrew Olson, and Michael Zhao developed and taught CSB222: Biological Light Microscopy, a 6-week intensive laboratory and discussion class geared to give participants the theoretical and practical knowledge to utilize emerging imaging technologies based on light microscopy. Topics included microscope optics, resolution limits, Köhler illumination, confocal microscopy, fluorescence, two-photon, TIRF, FRET, photobleaching, super-resolution (SIM, STED, STORM/PALM), and live-cell imaging. Students enjoyed plenty of hands-on time using the very nice, high-end microscope systems in the Stanford core facilities. We received very positive reviews on our class from the students who took it this spring, and as a result, we will be teaching the class again this fall. Please see the syllabus for more information: Microscopy_syllabus_Fall2017.

Congratulations, Brooks!

Congratulations, Brooks, on being awarded an NIH NRSA F32 Postdoctoral Fellowship for your proposal “Understanding control of adipogenesis by the dynamics of cAMP” and receiving the highest possible Impact Score and a rating of “Exceptional” on it!

1st Latin American Workshop and Conference on Systems Biology

Mary was very fortunate to be invited to participate in the 1st Latin American Workshop and Conference on Systems Biology held in Mexico City from May 2-5, 2017 (https://latamsysbio2017.wordpress.com/). It was a wonderful opportunity to hear great science and to meet researchers from Mexico, Argentina, Columbia, and other countries in Latin America. Looking forward to the next meeting which will be in Bogata, Columbia in 2019!!

Welcome, Atefeh!

We are happy to welcome Atefeh Rabiee to the lab as a Novo Nordisk Foundation/Stanford Bio-X Postdoctoral Fellow!

Keystone Diabetes/Obesity/Adipose Tissue Symposium

Devon, Stefan, and Mary attended the Keystone Diabetes/Obesity/AdiposeTissue Symposium in Keystone, Colorado from January 22-26, 2017. Devon and Stefan presented posters, and Mary gave a talk. It was great meeting scientifically and also we were fortunate to be there when Colorado had record snowfall and awesome ski conditions!

UCSF seminar

Mary gave a seminar at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus on Jan 11th. Thank you, Leor Weinberger and Katie Pollard, for a very interesting visit and for being great hosts!

NIH/NIDDK Adipose Tissue Niche Workshop

Mary gave a talk at the NIH/NIDDK Adipose Tissue Niche Workshop, Nov. 29-30, 2016 in Bethesda, MD. Congratulations to Zahra and Michael whose project “A circadian signaling code restricts the rate of cell differentiation” is designated a “Hot Topic” at the workshop!

ASCB Meeting, San Francisco

Kyle, Michael, and Ewa present posters at the American Society of Cell Biology (ASCB) Meeting on Dec. 4-7, 2016.
