We would like to congratulate our recent undergraduates who have worked in our group: Alex Naughton, Ryan Leighton, Jessie Marshik, Ntsang Anye, and Gerald Sakamaki. We are proud of you!
Alex Naughton and Ryan Leighton presented posters about their UROP projects at the Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium on April 13, 2018. Good job!
Ryan presented his research in a talk for Physics Honors on Friday, March 30. Great job!
Elsie Johnson joins the Sheets Research Group and will be working on our FRET projects. We are looking forward to working with her!
HongBok Lee and Ryan Leighton (and Erin) are presenting posters on their work with the macromolecular crowding sensors at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society! This meeting will be held February 17-21 in San Francisco CA. HongBok has received travel support from the Graduate School, SCSE, and the Department; and Ryan has received travel support from SCSE and the Department. We thank them for their support.
Alex Naughton and Ryan Leighton have been awarded UROPs that are allowing them to carry out research on ionic strength probes this semester. Congratulations!!
We would like to welcome Scarlet Hoffman and Christin Libal to the Sheets/Heikal groups!! We are looking forward to great results from you.
We would like to welcome Kelsey Omariba to our group! She comes to us from Rogers MN! Welcome and may your gels work.
Erin has been selected as a Senior Member to SPIE (International Society for Optics and Photonics) for her achievements in integrated microscopy, spectroscopy, optical trapping and tracking platforms. Senior members are members of distinction who are honored for their professional experience, their active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and/or significant performance that sets them apart from their peers.
Congratulations to Jake and Hannah for doing great jobs on their theses! We are busy writing up their beautiful results using FRET sensors to investigate macromolecular crowding. Well done and good luck in the next stages in your careers!
