Dr. Civelek was interviewed for a news spot highlighting Dr. Aherrahrou’s paper. Check out the interview here.
Dr. Redouane Aherrahrou published his paper entitled “Genetic regulation of atherosclerosis-relevant phenotypes in human vascular smooth muscle cells” in Circulation Research. You can read about the work here.
Rita Anane-Wae, Dillon Lue, and Zhiwen Xu put their efforts together and created The Genomics Society of UVA, hoping to promote undergraduate research. You can read about it here.
American Heart Association’s Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) awarded Dr. Mete Civelek with its Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Award for his mentorship of students who are underrepresented in STEM and his efforts in creating an equitable and inclusive climate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Dr. Redouane Aherrahrou’s paper “Genetic Regulation of Atherosclerosis-Relevant Phenotypes in Human Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells” was selected for the American Heart Association’s Council on Genomic and Precision Medicine Early Career Award. He will present his paper during the 2020 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions.
Dr. Warren Anderson published his paper entitled “Sex differences in human adipose tissue gene expression and genetic regulation involve adipogenesis” in Genome Research.
Civelek Lab members came together for a socially distant outdoors event for the first time during the pandemic. We enjoyed good food, music, and wine at the King Family Winery in Crozet.
Dr. Nik Barbera joined the lab as a postdoctoral fellow. He is a biophysicist who joined our lab after finishing his PhD doing a project jointly with Dr. Irena Levitan and Dr. Belinda Akpa at the University of Illinois in Chicago. St Louis. He will work on vascular smooth muscle-related projects in the laboratory. He will be supported by the Cardiovascular Training Grant (T32HL007284) Predoctoral Fellowship.
