Madeline Mayday is currently a second year graduate student in Dr. Diane Krause’s lab. Her work focuses on the effect of this fusion protein on normal and malignant hematopoiesis with the goal of elucidating the mechanism by which it promotes leukemogenesis. AMKL is a rare leukemia characterized by the improper development of megakaryocytes. In neonates, AMKL is most often caused by a genetic translocation resulting in the RBM15-MKL1 fusion protein.

Gigi Ge is currently a second year graduate student in Dr. Mandar Muzumdar’s lab. She studies the mechanisms of acquired resistance to KRAS-targeting therapies based on pharmacologic and genetic vulnerabilities. She utilizes drug and CRISPR screens in KRAS knockout pancreatic cancer cells and optogenetic tools to dissect the KRAS signaling network.
