New high profile publications:
Congratulations to Iris Meier and student, Xiao Zhou whose studies on Plant KASH-SUN Bridges and their role in RanGAP Anchoring and Nuclear Shape Determination was accepted for publication in the Journal of Cell Biology.
Gustavo Leone and Michael Ostrowski are co-corresponding authors of a publication on reprograming of tumor microenvironment by PTEN-regulated miR-320 to be published in Nature Cell Biology, probably in January. I think this makes 5 publications for Gustavo published in Nature journals in the past 24 months, likely a new international record!!!
