Congratulations to Katy Dunning, who masterfully defended her thesis "Investigating ubiquitin-mediated turnover of the key immune signaling protein kinase BOTRYTIS INDUCED KINASE1" before the winter break. You can read more about her work here. To celebrate her achievement, we enjoyed cupcakes and Brut from the comfort of our own homes, via Zoom.
Well done Katy, the lab will not be the same without you!
MSc student Katherine Dunning has been selected as one of this year's American Society for Plant Biology Plantae Fellows. Below are some of the excellent paper summaries she has published in the Plant Science Research Weekly blog. Her summaries are great - check them out!
I was invited to give a Departmental Seminar at the ZMPB in Tuebingen, where I had the wonderful opportunity to visit with former Monaghan Lab member and Queen's alum Danalyn Holmes who is now there working on her PhD. I enjoyed meeting with friends and colleagues at the ZMPB and discussing our ongoing work on the regulation of cytoplasmic protein kinases. I then travelled to Freiburg for a few days to join the Plant Proteostasis meeting, where I presented our work on the immune-induced ubiquitome.
Thanks for the bretzels, weizen, and great science - Prost!
