June 2013: We move again, but this time to the West Coast, at SRI International, Menlo Park, CA.

November 2012 was a good month for the Scholler lab: Nathalie was interviewed by Motherboard/VICE [Interview] and we made the cover of Neoplasia!

The cover represents an artistic depiction of the results presented in the paper by Nunez-Cruz et. al., wherein a role for complement in ovarian cancer neovascularization is described. C3 and C5aR deficiencies resulted in profoundly impaired epithelial ovarian cancer growth, reduced tumor vascularization and inhibition of specific VEGF isoforms, revealing a novel mechanism of VEGF regulation by complement anaphylatoxin C5.

 

 

 

 

 

Summer 2012: THE big move to the Translation Research Building.

"Fighting with cardboard boxes or just ignoring them?", that is the question...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer party 2012. No worries today :)

Nathalie received an Early Carier Faculty Travel Award from the AAI 2012, Boston, MA.

Denarda received a Junior Investigator Research Award for her presentation entitled "Overcoming TAM-mediated T-cell inhibition using anti-B7-H4 targeted therapeutics" at the 15th annual meeting of the Translational Research Cancer Center Consortium in February 2012! Well done and well deserved Denarda!

 

Yi Cheng celebrated her 20th Anniversary at Penn! Congrats, Yi!

 

 

 

 

 

Denarda's first paper as first author was accepted in PlosONE in November 2011! Time to celebrate!
