The David Laboratory attends CBBA 2019 at UCSF

Members of Sheila David’s Laboratory at UC Davis attended the Chemical Biology in the Bay Area (CBBA) Day on June 1st, 2019, which was hosted by UCSF in San Francisco. This event brought in graduate student presenters from UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley, and UCSF. The keynote speaker was Anthony Ogawa from Merck. Merve Demir from our lab presented a research poster titled, “Elucidating Additional Features of 8-Oxo-guanine Recognition and Adenine Excision Mechanism by the DNA Glycosylase MutY.” The speakers were consistently excellent throughout the day, touching on a broad range of topics within the wide world of chemical biology. We all had a great time. Cheers to all of the presenters and volunteers that helped run the conference!

  • A new study reveals that marine cyanobacteria communicate June 6, 2024
    A breakthrough study changes the way we understand cyanobacteria, which are essential for the sustenance of life. The study shows that these organisms do not operate in isolation, but rather physically interact through membrane-nanotubes, which function as exchange bridges between cells.
  • Younger children in school year are more commonly diagnosed with ADHD than their older classmates, says new study June 6, 2024
    New research has found that teachers may be attributing signs of age-related immaturity in children, to conditions such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The results of the study showed that the youngest students in a class, with birth dates just before the school entry cut-off date, were overrepresented among children receiving […]
  • Researchers upend theory about the formation of the Milky Way Galaxy June 6, 2024
    Research reveals a shocking discovery about the history of our universe: the Milky Way Galaxy's last major collision occurred billions of years later than previously thought.
  • Exotic black holes could be a byproduct of dark matter June 6, 2024
    In the first quintillionth of a second, the universe may have sprouted microscopic black holes with enormous amounts of nuclear charge, MIT physicists propose. The gravitational pull from these tiny, invisible objects could potentially explain all the dark matter that we can't see today.
  • Regenerating damaged heart cells in mice June 6, 2024
    Scientists have discovered a way to regenerate damaged heart muscle cells in mice, a development which may provide a new avenue for treating congenital heart defects in children and heart attack damage in adults, according to a new study.
