Student and Post Doc Highlights

Graduate students Emily Pitcairn, Kyle Jewhurst, and Kaylinnette Pinet were awarded SDB travel fellowships to present their research at the National Society for Developmental Biology (SDB) meeting in Snowbird, Utah July 2015.

This grant is awarded by SYNENERGENE, a four year project from the European Commission aimed at establishing an open and honest dialogue about the potential benefits and risks of synthetic biology. SYNENERGENE has partnered with the iGEM to provide grants to teams around the world. Last year, as the only North American recipient, the Tufts Synthetic Biology team investigated bacteriophage therapy. This year, the team will explore the intellectual property claims surrounding CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing.
