Eduardo’s paper with Javier Ganz in the Walsh lab was accepted in principle by Cancer Discovery. It reports that clonal oncogenic somatic single-nucleotide and copy number variants with pathogenic potential and high-allele frequency are present in the non-diseased human brain and show patterns resembling those found in brain tumors. Congrats, Eduardo!
Junho, our beloved first postdoctoral fellow has left to open his own laboratory at Sungkyunkwan Univerisy in South Korea. Congratulations, Junho! We had a lot of fun calling him "Kim kyo-soo-nim" (meaning "Professor Kim"). :)
Lan finally made a decision to join us after her research rotation in our lab last Fall. She is a second year PhD student in the BIG (Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics) program at Harvard. Welcome, Lan!
