Joshua Lewis’s work on using a combination of genome-scale metabolic modeling and machine learning to identify metabolite biomarkers for and prediction of tumor radiosensitivy has been published in Nature Communications! Check out the paper here, and the BME news article here.
A huge congratulations to Josh Lewis for successfully defending his PhD thesis today! His thesis is titled “Genome-scale modeling of redox metabolism and therapeutic response in radiation-resistant tumors”. Awesome work Dr. Lewis, and we wish him the best of success as he prepares to return to medical school!
The Kemp lab was well-represented at BMES this year. In addition to alums Melody Shao and Saheli Sarkar attending the conference, current students Josh Lewis, Andre Norfleet, Andrew Raddatz and 2018 REU Carina Rojanaroj presented posters. Melissa co-chaired the Analysis of Signaling Systems session and gave introductory marks at the special session on systems biology education.
Jakari Harris joins our lab as a summer REU from Hampton University. She is being co-mentored by Josh Lewis and Sarah Seals.
