July

Alex attended the “Intrinsically Disordered Proteins; Using Diverse Methods to Understand Biological Roles” Telluride Science Research Center meeting. A pleasure to catch up with collaborators and friends. Thanks to Richard Kriwacki, Chris Stanely and Arvind Ramanathan for the invitation.

May

Alex attended the “Liquid Phase Condensation as a Cellular Regulatory Mechanism: A State of the Science and Implications for Cancer Research” meeting at the National Cancer Institute, a small workshop to discuss the interplay between phase separation and cancer. The meeting was a huge success - thanks to Richard Kriwacki and Geeta Narlikar for their kind invitation to join.

April

Alex attended the 2019 Physical Basis of Cellular Adaptation and Memory workshop at the Bellairs Research Institute in Barbados. A truly stimulating meeting at the bleeding edge of quantitative cell biology! Thanks to Jackie Vogel and Simon Alberti for the invitation!

March

The Holehouse Lab website goes live! The lab will officially open in January 2020, but Alex is available to meet with prospective rotation students or postdocs to discuss projects at any point during 2019. Those interested should contact Alex directly.
