Emily and Bhuwan celebrating their PhD candidacy!
Our lab is proud to announce that Anne Marie (Ph.D. candidate) won Nerem Travel Award to do research in the other part of the world. She is going to use the travel award to visit University of the South Pacific in Fiji in the pursuit of compounds active against malaria and infectious worms and also explore their ecological roles in the natural environments.
Bhuwan participated in a poster competition at the “Georgia Tech Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference” and was awarded the travel grant. He is going to attend the 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Marine Natural Products in March at Ventura, CA.
Marisa Cepeda joined our lab as a doctoral graduate student. She comes to Georgia Tech with dual honors and B.S. in Chemistry from Florida State University. We wish her the very best for the research academic journey ahead!

Congratulations Remy et al. !
As we recollect from one of the PhD experiences you shared in the lab meeting, you always saw the light at the end of the tunnel and your dream to reach up to that light has come true. We congratulate you for such a huge success. All the best for your new life as postdoc at Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology!
