Congratulations to Ananya!
Ms. Ananya Mukundan, 4th-year MBSB student in the Medical Scientist Training Program, mentored by Prof. Andrew Hinck in University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, recently published a paper, “Convergent evolution of a parasite-encoded complement control protein-scaffold to mimic binding of mammalian TGF-β to its receptors, TβRI and TβRII”, in Journal of Biological Chemistry. She is working on this TGF-β research as a PhD student in the MBSB program while she is immersed in clinical clerkships, aiming to obtain MD/PhD dual degree.
