Whenever there is a challenge, students use their creativity to respond to these challenges. Here is an example.

2019/9/13 Ho Lab presented 6 posters at the Yale Micro Retreat - and Runxia won the Best Poster Award!

Postdoc Runxia's work on HIV-1 SortSeq/single cell analysis (with Jimmy and Jack) was selected as the Best Postdoc Poster Award at the Yale Micro Retreat!
Postdoc Jimmy presented his work on HIV-1 suppressing agent at the Yale Micro Retreat.
Our 3rd year PhD student Jack presented his poster (previously presented at the Nature Genomics Workshop) at the Yale Micro Retreat.
Our 2nd year PhD student Kristen presented her poster at the Yale Micro Retreat.
Our Postgrad Savannah presented her senior thesis work on CRISPR at Yale Micro Retreat.
Our NIH PREP student Darla presented her work (with our previous rotation student Nate) on HIV RNA-protein interactions at the Yale Micro Retreat.

Samana leaving for medical school!

2019/6/28 Congratulations to our postgrad Samana who is admitted to NYIT medical school! Sad that she is leaving us so soon but glad that she will become a kind and well-trusted physician soon!

Ya-Chi: "We came, we sequence, we cure."
Savannah: "HIV we are coming for you!"
Jack: "It's just a side project." (He has many projects.)
Ryan: "Grow your ideas!" (He holds a plant grower.)
Runxia: "Professional FISHer!" (She does RNA FISH everyday.)
Kristen: "Refuse to fear - instead work to understand"
Samana: "Rise and Pipette"(She has 6 96-well plates to work on next week)
Jimmy: "We belong"

Runxia - Professional FISHer (she did all the FISH)
Jack - Just a side project
(Jack has many many projects)
Samana - Rise and Pipette
(Samana is working on many 96 well plates)
Ryan - Grow your ideas
