Congratulations to Jennifer Tullet

Warmest congratulations to Dr Jennifer Tullet (Gems lab) whose paper “DAF-16/FoxO directly regulates an atypical AMP-activated protein kinase gamma isoform to mediate the effects of insulin/IGF-1 signaling on aging in C. elegans” was recently accepted for publication by the journal PLoS Genetics. Jennifer also presented this work at the British Society for Research on Ageing annual conference and received the Koncharevsky Award for best talk by an up and coming scientist. This award will allow her to attend and speak at the American Aging Association meeting in San Antonio, Texas in 2014.
