The end of 2015 was pretty eventful with the publication of the mechanism by which cells suppress HR in G1 cells. A couple of other papers were accepted late in December so watch this space for updates in early 2016!
The end of 2015 also marked the departure of Alex Orthwein – Alex is leaving to set-up his own group at the Lady Davis Institute / McGill University in Montreal. You can check out his website and learn more about his plans.
While we are sad to see him go, we look forward to continue working with him on a few projects. Also, as one departs, another person often comes in. In early January, we will welcome Tim Ng as a new graduate student in the lab. Tim will also work on the cell cycle regulation of DNA double-strand break repair. We will put his mug shot on the website in early January.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2016 filled with happiness and love.
