We just submitted Alicia’s tour de force PhD work on translational control during amino acid limitation in mamamalian cells for peer review. Alicia was jointly mentored by me and my postdoc advisor, Erin O’Shea (a feed-forward loop that was hopefully coherent). Alicia is delving deeper into mammalian metabolism as a postdoc in the Vander Heiden group at MIT. Read our manuscript on bioRxiv. Congratulations, Alicia!
