First graduates!

Congratulations to the first students to get their PhDs from the lab! Karl Lundquist, Anthony Hazel, Sunny Hwang, and Curtis Balusek all defended their PhDs at the end of last semester. Karl is sticking around for a couple months to finish up some projects before going to a postdoc with Nick Noinaj at Purdue, Anthony is already moving on to a postdoc with Alex MacKerell at U. Maryland, Sunny is going to do a postdoc in Emad Tajkhorshid’s lab at UIUC, and Curtis is starting a new career at Axis Group. We wish them all the best of luck!
