The Coombes lab is excited to share our latest research, led by PhD student Caressa Tsai (left). In her paper, published this month in Cell Chemical Biology, Caressa and company screened about 50,000 small molecules and found one that inhibited virulence gene expressio...
I'd like to give a big shout out to Alexandra Parco for receiving a Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research! Can't wait for us to get back to the lab so we can have a proper celebration.
Check out this beast of a molecule, discovered by Beth Culp and crew in the Wright lab by applying a phylogenetics-based approach to antibiotic discovery. Amazing story and a super fun collaboration. Check out the paper!
Bushra Ilyas received the 2018 Impact Award from the Biochemistry graduate program for her recent publication in Cell Reports. Apologies for the messy lab background...there's no such thing as tidy idleness in our shop.
Whatever your drink of choice, it tastes better in the Thallion (strong, dauntless), the mystical chalice that awaits you after your thesis defense. Congratulations to Dr. Bushra Ilyas, who is the lab's 10th completed PhD student!
Congratulations to Jordyn Perry, who received the 2019 Summer Fellowship from the David Braley Centre for Antibiotic Discovery. Jordyn will be completing her summer research in the Coombes lab and we're excited to have her join Team Coombes!
