And like clockwork, all three of incoming graduate students have passed their quals this summer (not that this was ever in doubt). Congratulations!

So, while I was away on vacation, the lab got a new 3D printer. Check out what they made. We will be adding details on how to make several lab tools here and our experience troubleshooting the prints.


We are really excited and also a bit sad to see the amazing Sagara join the Md/PhD program at Indiana University. He will be leaving us soon. In the short time, Sagara was in the lab as an undergrad tech, he contributed to 4 papers. Good luck and godspeed!

Woah! The core lab basically doubled this week. We have three new graduate students joining the lab - Sukanya Das, John Favate, and Alex Salibi. So much cool science to look forward to.

I guess when it rains, it pours! We are thrilled that NIDDK R01 submitted by our collaborator Anil Rustgi at UPenn will be funded. We will receive a subaward to study the role of post-transcriptional regulation by LIN28B-IMP1 in oncogenic signalling in intestines.

Ritu Gupta from Sunil Laxman's lab at inStem is visiting the lab. She will be studying the role of tRNA thiolation on metabolism and cell cycle using ribosome-profiling.

We are super excited (and a bit relieved) to announce that our lab's research will be supported by an NIH R35 grant (ESI-MIRA) for the next 5 years. We now have several open positions for both postdocs and graduate students. Informal enquiries welcome!

Sagara Wijeratne starts as a lab assistant in the Shah Lab. He will be developing computational pipelines for analyzing ribosome-profiling datasets, while preparing to join MD/PhD programs for his graduate studies. Welcome aboard!
