Our lab received an NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, hurray!!!
The NIH Common Fund just announced the recipients of its 2019 High-Risk, High-Reward Research Program. The award comes with generous funding that will allow our research to keep being strange. Thanks to all!

We are very excited to welcome the newest PouLab members, three talented postbac scholars from UMB’s prestigious STAR-PREP program will become the lab’s youngest investigators! Jefferey Inen, mouse geneticist & cancer biologist extraordinaire from UMBC, will work with Ryan Richardson; Saovleak “Noury” Khim, all-round development-to-regenerative neuroscientist from Temple, and Uriel Jean-Baptiste, hardcore structure-function biochemist from Florida State, will work with Bek Altas. Welcome to your new lab, enjoy your research, and get lots of great data!
Congratulations to Andrea Romanowski for passing her qualifying exam and advancing to PhD candidacy with flying colors!
Ryan Richardson presented his work on “Optimizing HDR efficiency and biallelic modification for in vivo knock-in” at the Keystone Symposium on Genome Engineering at Victoria, BC, Canada.
Andrea and Garrett spreading the love for neuroscience at Windsor Hills Elementary and Middle School!

Do we use the windows as white boards? We sure do.
Today is the first day for Ben Grosso (Program in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology) and Garrett Bunce (Program in Neuroscience) in the lab, kicking off the first round of 2019 lab rotations for GPILS students. Andrea and Marilyn introduce the new lab members to the lab’s science…
Come see four weeks-worth of the latest that’s happened in science: Crowdsourced JC, every last Friday of the month!
Andrea Romanowski, from the Program in Molecular Medicine, becomes the lab’s 1st PhD student! Andrea’s first official day of PhD work, July 26, is also the day that, exactly 100 years ago, Emmy Noether published a paper outlining her eponymous theorem. Auspicious beginnings for the future Dr. Romanowski!
Moving day is here! Time for the Poulopoulos Lab to get a new home across the street in Health Sciences Facility III.
Equipment needs bubble wrap, heavy things need lifting, scopes come apart and back together again. And in the midst of this madness, our science doesn’t miss a beat! The heroic investigators of the lab continued cloning and perfusing in between filling crates and hauling off incubators. Everyone working hard… except the guy behind the camera, that is.
Goodbye old lab… hello vista from the 9th floor of the new and improved PouLab!!!
