Jan, Yeongho and Priyanka taught molecular biology to high school science students at the Pathways to Science Festival
Publications from the Bewersdorf and Burd labs get the top spots on the Journal of Cell biology web page!
Congratulations to Yeongho on his Yale Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center Scholars Award, ‘Sphingomyelin-to-gamma- Secretase Molecular Interaction in Alzheimer’s Disease’
Congratulations to Chris for being named interim chair of the department.
In July Chris participated in the Meeting in Cellular Membrane Dynamics held at the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal for advanced graduate students. They are awesome!
Happy birthday, Chris! (Thank you for the wonderful gifts).
Congratulations to Yeongho and Chris on the publication of their paper, “Lipid Sorting and Organelle Identity”, in Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology.
Farewell to Charlotte Ford and her family, Tom and Teddy. You are missed!
Happy birthday, Yeongho!
Happy birthday, Priyanka!
Congratulations to Jan on the publication of his PhD thesis research in eLife: Pathogenic variants of sphingomyelin synthase SMS2 disrupt lipid landscapes in the secretory pathway.
Congratulations to Charlotte on the publication of her paper in Molecular Biology of the Cell
We welcome Priyanka Sharma to the lab!
Chris presented our work at the 2022 EMBO Workshop on Membrane Transporters as Essential Elements of Cellular Function and Homeostasis in Chanio, Greece.
Charlotte served as co-Chair of the 2022 Gordon Research Seminar on Protein Processing, Trafficking and Secretion, held at Colby-Sawyer College, New Hampshire.
Yeongho was the moderator of the “Lipid Synthesis and Metabolism” session at the 2022 American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Philadelphia.
Discussing new results with Yale colleagues, Shawn Ferguson and Karin Reinisch
Chris served as Chair of the 2022 Gordon Research Conference on Lysosomes and Endocytosis, held at Proctor Academy, New Hampshire. Next to Chris are the 2024 and 2026 Chairs, Phyllis Hanson (University of Michigan) and Graça Raposo (Curie institute, Paris).
Discovery may help provide clues for fighting and treating HPV
August 16, 2018
Yale Cancer Center scientists have filled in a key gap in understanding the unusual route by which the Human papillomavirus (HPV) infects cells. Their findings, published online today in the journal Cell, may eventually help to broaden the scope of defenses against HPV and provide valuable clues for delivering drugs into cells.
Four Yale faculty members named AAAS Fellows
November 27, 2018
Four Yale faculty members have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.
The 416 members have been awarded this honor by the AAAS in recognition of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.
Christopher Burd gives guest lecture at Técnico Lisboa
July 9, 2018
On July 9, at 3:00 pm, professor Christopher Burd (Department of Cell Biology, Yale School of Medicine, YSM, New Haven, CT, Connecticut, USA) will give the lecture “Protein and Lipid Sorting in the Secretory Pathway”, under the partnership between Técnico and the US embassy in Portugal.
Congratulations to Yeongho on the acceptance of his paper, “Cholesterol-dependent homeostatic regulation of very long chain sphingolipid synthesis”, by the Journal of Cell Biology. Thanks to collaborators Can Senkal and Grace Mavodza of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine.
Yeongho attended the Molecular Membrane Biology Gordon Research Conference held in Andover, Massachusetts
Jan and Chris attended the Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids Gordon Research Conference held in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire.
With the help of grant supplements from the NIH (thank you!), Chris and 4th floor colleague, Julia von Blume, now have a Nikon SoRa spinning disk confocal microscope with a live imaging chamber.
Congratulations to Charlotte and Tom on the birth of their son, Theodore!
