The Sammons Lab traveled to the Cold Spring Harbor meeting Systems Biology: Global Regulation of Gene Expression from March 20th-23rd.

Ally presented her poster on discovering transcription factor and sequence determinants of p53-dependent enhancer activity.


Gizem presented her work on the mechanisms that drive differential p53 transcriptional responses across cell types.


Morgan presented the second half of Gizem's project demonstrating that p63 acts as a true pioneer factor and establishes/maintains epithelial-specific enhancer structure.


Sammons Lab representatives Gizem and Ally presented their work at the Life Sciences Research Symposium on Friday, November 3rd, 2017 at the University at Albany, SUNY. Gizem

Gizem presented her work on cell lineage-dependent transcriptional responses and Ally discussed a new way to study transcription factor collectives at enhancers. Team Picture

Ally was runner-up for Best Oral Presentation in her session at the UAlbany Life Sciences Research Symposium.

Besides a gift card to the University bookstore (Go Great Danes!), Ally has won a trip to Starbucks (courtesy of her proud mentor Morgan).

Kansas City, MO Stowers Institute July 13th-16th, 2017
