Congrats to our graduate student Michael Gilbert for receiving a fellowship from NIA to study the proteomic landscape that defines social behavior in Camponotus floridanus! Also co-mentored by Ben Garcia.
Excited to share our research highlighting a new role for the transcription factor p53 in re-locating its target genes within the nucleus in relation to nuclear speckles, phase-separated nuclear bodies, that boost gene expression of select target genes.
This work was led by post-doc Kate Alexander, who had a spectacular time working on this project! A huge thank you to our wonderful collaborators: Arjun Raj, Andrew Belmont, Eric Joyce, and Shawn Little.
