Another PhD from the Vogel Lab: Kristina Allgoewer successfully defended her dissertation on proteomic signatures in serum of Zika and dengue patients! Kristina originally joined the lab in 2016 as a visiting Master’s student and stayed on for another 4 years as a visiting doctoral student in a collaboration with the Ohler lab (Humboldt University of Berlin/MDC).
Two new PhDs from the Vogel Lab: Congratulations to Burcu Vitrinel and Justin Rendleman on successfully defending their theses!
ASBMB Today is reporting on our recently published article on new proteomic signatures to distinguish between Zika and dengue infections (Allgoewer et al.) in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. In a collaboration between the Vogel lab (proteomics) and the Ghedin lab (genomics) we were able to retrieve robust conclusions from a challenging data set.
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.
Congratulations to Funda Kar, who was awarded the NYU Biology Department Chair’s Fellowship for demonstrating outstanding research potential!
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.
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.
Congrats to Burcu Vitrinel on receiving the Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship!
We are excited to participate in a nation-wide effort to understand the response to flu vaccines!
Congrats to Justin Rendleman on receiving the Steve Kazianis Memorial Award!
Congrats to Burcu Vitrinel on receiving the Fleur Strand Graduate Fellowship!
The Vogel Lab appears in a Technology Feature in Nature Methods: “A dream of single-cell proteomics”.

Congratulations to Zhe Cheng for becoming the first Vogel Lab PhD!!!!! Well done and all the best for the future!
Also congratulations to Koby on his first publication (he is featured in a book).
We won one of Biognosys’ Research Challenge Awards!
We welcome all our summer students: Fabian from Puerto Rico (NYU Bio-SURP), Christy from Ethiopia (NYU GSTEM), and our two NYU K12 ARISE students Chrislie and Shukai from NYC!
Many exciting happenings: we are welcoming Amy, Matteo, and Fabian to our lab — they are our summer research undergraduates and will be pushing the frontiers of science in various ways!
Also, the Vogel lab is part of two (two!!!!!) seedgrants to establish new projects and collaborations: one with Brian Parker sponsored by the NYU Center for Data Science; one with Cristina Alberini (NYU Center for Neural Science) sponsored by the Dean of Science. Woo woo woo!
And finally: we are making progress in getting our Orbi Elite back on track. But that’s a different story…
