Congratulations to Christopher Ashwood for being selected for this prestigious award! Chris will use this award to travel to the laboratory of Dr. Lukas Kall at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden for a short sabbatical aimed to develop new bioinformatic tools for analyzing glycan structures by MS!
In this manuscript, we demonstrate pitfalls with popular antibodies and sample preparation conditions commonly used for the assessment of cardiomyocyte identity within differentiation cultures. By using a rigorous fit-for-purpose workflow, the authors developed and validated a comprehensive protocol to accurately assess cardiomyocyte identity within hPSC-CM cultures. The new protocol includes stepwise instructions to facilitate its implementation by experts and novices, alike.
We are proud to present our efforts with long-term collaborator, Dr. Kenneth R. Boheler to publish The Surfaceome! A huge thanks to all of the contributors and chapter authors for their efforts and expertise!
Matt Waas was awarded a prestigious two year NIH F31 Fellowship for his application entitled "Investigating the Utility and Function of a Novel Cardiomyocyte Cell Surface Protein". His application scored the 9th percentile - outstanding!
Dr. Gundry was elected to the international Human Proteome Organization Council. She will serve a 3-year term as a Diversity Representative for the Western Region beginning in January 2018.
Congratulations to Matt Waas for having his co-first author manuscript selected for the Cover of Proteomics! This was a collaborative effort with Dr. Neil Kelleher, Northwestern University.
Congratulations to Erin Kropp for having her manuscript selected for the Cover of Stem Cells Translational Medicine!
Congratulations to Matt Waas for being selected for this prestigious award to attend the annual ASMS meeting in June 2017!
In a collaboration between the laboratory of Steve Duncan at MUSC and the Gundry lab, we applied the Cell Surface Capture Technology and the Cell Surface Protein Atlas to map proteins on the surface of primary human hepatocytes. From here, new markers for sorting liver-like cells derived from human pluripotent stem cells were developed. The story is highlighted HERE.
The Gundry lab was awarded a 4 year $1.5M R01 grant from NIH/NHLBI for the project entitled "Cell Surface Proteins in Human Cardiomyocytes"
