Congratulations, Mitch and Miguel!

We are very proud to announce that Miguel Lopez has been offered admission to graduate school and Mitchell Peake has been offered a place in medical school!

Miguel has been the lab manager since June, 2013. His work with single molecule studies of PFV integrase has produced one paper in press and a second paper currently under review.

Mitch has worked as an undergraduate student in the lab since May, 2014. He has been awarded several undergraduate research fellowships and presented multiple posters at OSU. Mitch is also an author on a paper currently under review.

It’s hard to imagine the lab without Miguel and Mitch, but we are happy to see them progress in their respective careers. Congratulations,  Miguel and Mitch!
