BMES Conference 2019
9 Conway Lab members attend BMES this year in Philadelphia, giving 1 oral and 6 poster presentations!
Ph.D. Candidate, Vani Narayanan, is featured in the September issue of Current Biology. Vani, and collaborators at the University of Flordia, identified fundamental properties of cells that affect how tissue structures forms.
Welcoming New PhD Students!
Her PhD project will focus on the mechanisms of taking over a genome.
