Happy Halloween from the Koshy Lab!  Due to the pandemic, we were unable to congregate with our fellow T. gondii enthusiasts this year.  Instead, we decided to bring some of the Toxo congress to Arizona by impersonating researchers in the field.  See if you can guess who is who! 

Emily invited to speak at SCEP 2020

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

The entire Koshy Lab attended the Southern California Eukaryotic Pathogens Symposium (SCEP) virtually this year. Emily gave a well received talk titled "Are T Cells Recognizing Toxoplasma Injected Neurons?" (Go Em!)  It was awesome to be able to interact with our friends at UCI and to hear about the ongoing research on some of our favorite Eukaryotic pathogens ... even if only from a Zoom screen.  

Josh selected to speak at MPM 2020

Emily and Hannah's paper titled, "Transcriptional Profiling Suggests T Cells Cluster around Neurons Injected with Toxoplasma gondii Proteins" was recently accepted to mSphere!  Thanks to all of our collaborators who helped with this work.  Another group effort!

Way to go, Kathryn!
