Summer 2022, Dr. Stephen Crews will teach BIOL 490 Medical Biochemistry and Disease as part of UNC Science Dublin Study Abroad. The Study Abroad session in Dublin, Ireland will run from June 1 to July 17, 2022.
Michael Artov, ex-Crews Lab undergraduate researcher, was accepted to medical school at Tulane University School of Medicine. Congratulations to Mike and best wishes for a terrific medical career.
Steve Crews published a comprehensive review in the journal Genetics “Drosophila Embryonic CNS Development: Neurogenesis, Gliogenesis, Cell Fate, and Differentiation”.
The eclectic rendering of the Drosophila CNS by former postdoc, Joe Pearson, will continue to be displayed at UNC. Previously, it was featured with additional science art by UNC neuroscientists at the Ackland Art Museum’s 2019 spectacular exhibit “The Beautiful … Continued
Bob Franks, former Crews lab graduate student and now Professor, was appointed head of the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at North Carolina State University. Bob’s lab carries out research on plant development.
Trevor Parton, ex-lab undergraduate, was accepted as a medical student at UNC this year. In the lab, Trevor worked alongside postdoc, Joe Fontana, and carried-out outstanding work on the molecular control of neuronal differentiation. Congratulations and good luck.
Ex-Crews lab undergraduate researcher, Satish Gopal MD, MPH, is the 2017 UNC Winter Commencement speaker. Satish is an Associate Professor at UNC School of Medicine and Cancer Program Director for UNC Project-Malawi.
Our labs were awarded a joint grant from the Integrative Program in Biological and Genome Sciences to optimize genomic techniques for studying transcription factor binding using small numbers of cells.
Stephen Crews contributed an article describing the use of CRISPR/Cas9 to create cell type-specific mutants.
In collaboration with the lab of Daniel McKay (UNC), we carried-out a genomic approach to identify midline enhancers across the genome.
