Colón-Ramos Named Director of Wu Tsai Institute’s Center for Neurodevelopment and Plasticity
“In science, every answer ends with a question,” Colón-Ramos said. “The most exciting part of our work as scientists is that quest of constant learning. The Wu Tsai Institute is bringing together disciplines that should be more frequently linked—neuroscience, behavior, and computation—to move us to the next level of knowledge.”Source: Research at Yale
Rallying Resources Around DNA Repair Research
When it comes to unlocking the secrets of DNA repair, Yale Cancer Center has an armamentarium at work. In the last two years, Yale’s team has made significant advances in targeting the BRCA-dependent DNA repair axis for cancer therapy and determined that both BRCA1 and BRCA2 protein are involved in DNA repair, but they have fundamentally different mechanisms.

In the right (lab) culture, mentorship flourishes — and science benefits
You might imagine a science lab looking a bit sterile and impersonal — little sunlight, masked figures in white coats pouring neon-colored liquid into beakers, all business. You might not expect to hear a science lab referred to as familial, where badminton tournaments, movie nights and barbeques are commonplace.
