February 2021:

The Vogel lab identifies new proteomic signatures to distinguish between Zika and dengue infections using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry: Kristina Allgoewer and Shuvadeep Maity publish their analysis of human serum samples from Zika and dengue patients in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. Three of the differentially expressed proteins, i.e. Fibrinogen Alpha, Platelet Factor 4 Variant 1, and Pro-Platelet Basic Protein, predict Zika virus infection at a ∼70% true positive and 6% false positive rate.

December 2020:

Congratulations to Funda Kar, who was awarded the NYU Biology Department Chair’s Fellowship for demonstrating outstanding research potential!

August 2020:

We are proud to be part of the Chan Zuckerberg Neurodegeneration Challenge Network with our our collaborator Esteban Mazzoni (NYU Biology). The project investigates new functions of the proteasome, started by former lab member Shuvadeep Maity (now faculty at BITS Pilani). 

Congratulations to former lab member Gustavo Silva (now faculty at Duke University) for publication of his work on the structural changes in the K63 ubiquitinated ribosome.

June 2020:

A new proteomics workflow from the Vogel Lab: Burcu Vitrinel publishes a protein quantification method in ACS Omega. The workflow uses chemical peptide labeling, does not require specific equipment other than cell lysis tools, and quantifies >2500 proteins with high reproducibility. 

December 2019:

Congrats to Burcu Vitrinel on receiving the Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship!

October 2019:

We are excited to participate in a nation-wide effort to understand the response to flu vaccines!
