Former lab member gets permanent position at the USDA.

Congratulations to former lab member Loren LaPointe for having accepted a permanent position as an Agricultural Science Advisor at the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.

Loren has recently completed a AAAS Science Policy fellowship, working at the same USDA agency. Previously, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Chuck Sanders at Vanderbilt University.

Loren was a Ph.D. student in the lab who graduated in December 2014 with a thesis on the structural organization of FtsB, a critical regulatory protein of the bacterial divisome.

We wish Loren good luck in her new position!
