Lo Graduate Fellowship for Excellence in Stem Cell Research
Yale Stem Cell Center is pleased to announce the seventh year of “The Lo Graduate Fellowship for Excellence in Stem Cell Research” for outstanding senior graduate students pursuing stem cell research at Yale University. This one-year fellowship ($22,750 for each fellow) is made possible by a generous gift of endowment from the K.S. & Feili Lo Foundation. It is Yale Stem Cell Center’s most prestigious graduate award, and is designed to recognize and support graduate students with demonstrated passion and achievement in stem cell research. Three awards are given each year to partially defray each recipient’s stipend, with funding beginning on September 1, 2018.
Anna Baccei, graduate student in the laboratory of Shangqin Guo in the Department of Cell Biology, is working on the development of a new fluorescence-based reporter to measure cell cycle speed in live cells with a single snapshot.
Bomiao Hu, graduate student in the laboratory of Katerina Politi in the Department of Pathology, is investigating the mechanisms of drug tolerance using mouse models of mutant EGFR-driven lung cancer.
Benjamin Patterson, graduate student in the laboratory of In-Hyun Park in the Department of Genetics, is using stem cells to model how humans regulate X chromosomes in early development and how this process can fail outside of the body.
