On Tuesday March 27 the Division of Cell and Development Biology and the UCB Stem Cell Center will be co-sponsoring a one-day symposium on "Frontiers in Tumor Biology".
We have a great lineup of speakers and you can download a pdf poster advertising the meeting here.
MCB graduate students Carolyn Phillips and Gianna Hammer have received the 2007 Harold M. Weintraub award.
Gianna completed her Ph.D. in the Fall semester in the Nilabh Shastri lab working on antigen processing in the endoplasmic reticulum. Carolyn will complete her Ph.D this semester in the Dernburg lab working on understanding fundamental mechanisms of chromosome segregation.
The Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute, with participation from MCB and other departments, is currently recruiting for two faculty positions. Details are available here.
Former MCB Graduate Student Dr. Tracy Johnson has been selected as a 2005 recipient of the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
Dr. Johnson received her Ph.D. from the MCB Department in 1996 after completing her thesis research on RNA binding to RNA Polymerase II in Professor Michael Chamberlain's lab. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Biology at the University of California, San Diego.

Faculty, post-docs, and students are invited to participate in and contribute to the first international UC Berkeley evolutionary developmental biology conference beginning May 31, 2006. The meeting is being organized by graduate students of Integrative Biology and Molecular & Cell Biology.
Inspired by the integration of evolution and development research programs within these departments, the meeting will highlight Berkeley's new Center for Integrative Genomics and include multiple non-concurrent symposia covering a wide range of evolutionary developmental biology topics.
The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology is home to many talented undergraduate students. Among those who have been recently recognized by the University are Amar Kishan and Nicole Swann.
Nicole Swann has been named one of five finalists for the 2006 University Medal which is awarded every year to the the most distinguished graduating senior on the Berkeley campus.
Assitant Professor In-Residence Abby Dernburg has been awarded the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Scholar Award.
