The Greer Lab is delighted to announce the first additions to our laboratory. Cesar Dominguez joins the laboratory upon his graduation from Williams College this spring. During his time at Williams, Cesar performed some incredibly exciting work on sphingolipids in Daniel Lynch’s (https://biology.williams.edu/profile/dlynch/). In our lab he will be spearheading a project aimed at characterizing how a new family of mammalian chemoreceptors is able to detect chemicals and transduce this information to intracellular signaling pathways.
Matthew Coyle will be joining us from Northeastern University for his Co-op internship. The Co-op program is a neat program at Northeastern during which undergraduates perform paid internships full-time for six months giving them an opportunity to explore professional opportunities while still enrolled as undergraduates. For more on this program please visit the Co-op website (https://www.northeastern.edu/coop/). Matthew will be working on a role for MS4A receptors in microglia during physiological and pathological situations.
We’re incredibly excited to have both of these promising young scientists on board for our scientific journey!
