Welcome, MacBeath lab!

July 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

This week we’re delighted to welcome the members of the MacBeath lab to the Department.  Gavin MacBeath, lately of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology (CCB), has recently taken up a position as Head of Translational Research at Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, a company he co-founded with Peter Sorger.  His lab at CCB therefore needed to close down, but several interesting projects remained incomplete.  Fortunately, we were able to arrange for several lab members to move to HMS.  Gavin will now be a Lecturer in the Department, and will be here every Friday; his lab members Taran Gujral and Albert Ye can be found in the Sorger lab, while Alexei Finski and Greg Koytiger are sitting in the Springer lab.  They’re working on a variety of topics including SH2 protein microarrays, EGF signaling and DNA damage, Wnt signaling in mammalian cells, and a novel microlysis technology for looking at proteins in single cells within tissue samples.  They also brought lots of proteomic equipment with them, which I know some of you will be very excited about.  Please make them feel welcome!
