A belated welcome and congrats to new Kamat Lab undergrads who recently all received prestigious summer fellowships
The Kamat Lab welcomes a new group of terrific undergraduate students, who started in the Winter of 2019. Kenneth Wang (a freshman Neuroscience major), Nora Chambers (a freshman BME major) and Summer Duffy (a sophomore BME major) have been hard at work for the past two quarters. Kenneth, Nora, and Summer all received prestigious undergraduate […]
The Kamat Lab along with the labs in Northwestern’s Center of Synthetic Biology were recently awarded funding from NSF to build new features of a synthetic cell. Check out the write up here!
Congratulations to Maggie Boyd, who was awarded both the NDSEG and NSF Fellowships last week! Maggie has accepted the NDSEG Fellowship that begins this Fall.
Maggie has been selected to receive the Research Progress Award at the Northwestern BME Department’s annual BME Research Day. Each year, one graduate student from each of our Department’s three tracks is selected for the award, which recognizes the significant research productivity of the awardee in the past year. Great job, Maggie!
Kamat Lab’s resident artist, Maggie Boyd, took a break from making vesicles to sketch this lovely design for the IBiS retreat.
Justin was recently awarded the NSF Graduate Fellowship. The NSF graduate fellowship recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in science and engineering. It is one of the most prestigious awards at this stage of their career. Congratulations, Justin!
Maggie, who is completing her first year as a PhD student in Northwestern’s Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program, is a recipient of the Molecular Biophysics Training Program at Northwestern. The Biophysics training program is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (5T32 GM008382).
Undergraduate research is in full swing in the Kamat Lab. Kayla Purdy, a rising Sophomore from Clarkson University, joins the Kamat Lab for the summer through the Synthetic Biology Research Experience for Undergraduates (SynBREU). Northwestern undergrads Claire, Alex, and Kamyrn all received prestigious undergraduate research fellowships this year: Claire was awarded both the Northwestern University Undergraduate […]
Congrats to Kamat Lab undergrad, Claire Hilburger who won 2nd place in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Division of the morning poster session at the Undergraduate Research Expo. Her poster on ‘Hybrid Membrane Interactions with Fatty Acids’ highlighted her recent exciting work on externally controlling the composition of carrier membranes. Great job!
Miranda Jacobs, who recently completed her first year as a PhD student in Northwestern’s Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences (IBiS) Graduate Program, is a recipient of the Molecular Biophysics Training Program at Northwestern.
