Quy Nguyen received CCBS Opportunity Award

Congratulations to Quy for winning one of this year’s Opportunity Awards from the Center for Complex Biological Systems (CCBS) together with Tao Peng from Qing Nie’s lab at UCI. This award will foster the collaboration between the Nie and Kessenbrock labs on “Understanding the systems-level changes during breast tumorigenesis using single cell RNA-seq”. Each winning proposal will receive $10,000 to be shared between the labs for project expenses; and a $1,000 award for research supplies to be shared between students. The results of this project will be presented at next year’s annual CCBS retreat scheduled for March 31 – April 2nd, 2017, due to be held in Pasadena, CA!
