April Kim and Heiko Horn, along with members from the Eggan Lab (Natalie Petrossian, Billy Crotty, Eugene Nacu) presented their work on elucidating brain networks perturbed by genetics in psychiatric diseases at the 2018 iPSYCH meeting.
Kalliopi Tsafou, who received her PhD in Health Sciences from the University of Copenhagen and was a postdoctoral fellow at Toretsky Lab at Georgetown, joins the Lage Lab to focus on approaches that rely on the combination of protein interaction networks with temporal proteomic profiling towards illuminating otherwise hidden underlying disease mechanisms. Welcome Kalliopi!
Anika Gupta, who has been an MIT Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program researcher in the lab for 2 years, was recently accepted into the PhD programs of Harvard (Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics), Harvard-MIT (Health Sciences and Technology), and Stanford Medicine (Biomedical Informatics). Anika was co-supervised with Aviv Regev.
Congratulations Anika – we couldn’t be more proud of you and wish you the very best of luck as a graduate student!!!

Kasper Lage was involved in a general discussion regarding a new Danish National Genome Center, featured on the front page of the well-respected Danish newspaper ‘Weekendavisen’, in two articles in Ingenioren and in an interview on Danish National Radio. Kasper was also featured in Nature Methods, in a profile titled “Scoring Genes in Light of Their ‘Friends’, a Naval Approach to Science”.
