Summer 2018 Interns!

We trained Courtney Hegner (SURF Program) and Brendan Arp (Kenan HS Fellows) for the summer.  Over the course of 10 weeks, they learned basic molecular biology and immunology techniques while conducting their own research projects.  At the end of the summer, SURF interns present a poster and Kenan interns give a short presentation about their…

“GoldiRunx and Remembering Cytotoxic Memory”

The molecular basis for T cell memory differentiation remains elusive. Wang et al. (2018) identify Runx3 as an initiating transcription factor that specifies regulatory regions required for cytotoxic T cell (CTL) memory differentiation early after TCR signaling and constrains the ability of T-bet to drive terminal effector generation.
