Dr. Haynes received an award for SBHSE Outstanding Assistant Professor 2016-2017. Awardees are evaluated based on yearly performance and selected by the Director of the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering.
Research abstracts from the Haynes lab have been selected to be showcased at the 2017 American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) annual meeting. ASBMB is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization with over 12,000 members. This year’s meeting will be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL April 22 – 26, 2017. Dr. Karmella Haynes will be presenting a talk entitled In Vitro Development of Synthetic Chromatin Proteins That Function in Live Cells on Tuesday April 25 during the Spotlight Session Beyond the Code: Chemistry of Nucleotide and Amino Acid Modifications. For the poster session Protein Engineering and Design, also on April 25th, her doctoral student Stefan Tekel (Biological Design, PhD) will present a poster entitled Using Multivalency to Improve the Function of Synthetic Epigenetic Proteins. Dr. Haynes will also be presenting a poster.
Support: NIH NCI award (K01 CA188164) to K. Haynes, SBHSE Merit Award to S. Tekel

If you are an undergraduate who is enrolled at ASU and would like to get exposure to lab research-in-action, apply for a position as an Undergraduate Mentee (UGM). Accepted applicants will be partnered with a knowledgeable lab member (mentor) and will shadow their mentor’s research at the bench. UGM’s who are highly engaged may be invited to help analyze data or even set up and run experiments in molecular cloning, cell culture, gene editing, protein engineering, PCR, etc. depending upon the mentor’s current project. UGM’s may participate for as little as two consecutive weeks or as long as one full semester. Read the rest of this entry »
