Call for Nominations for the Fred Sanfilippo ASIP Visiting Lectureship Program

Sanfilippo

This program provides unique opportunities for early career ASIP members to establish new research collaborations, while gaining exposure for their research accomplishments on the national stage.

The Fred Sanfilippo-ASIP Visiting Lectureship Program provides funding for ASIP members who are in the early stages of their academic careers to travel and visit other departments/institutions to give one or more research presentations as a distinguished visiting lecturer. The primary goal of this program is to provide exposure of promising young faculty to members of the greater pathobiology research community, increasing their national recognition and reputation. Fred Sanfilippo-ASIP Visiting Lecturers benefit from national exposure and interactions with faculty at the host institution which may result in new collaborations that will advance research endeavors at both institutions and may generate other beneficial long-term relationships such as distance mentoring within their chosen field of study.

ASIP members at academic institutions who are in the early stages of their career (Assistant Professors and/or Associate Professors who have not yet been granted tenure), are eligible for the Sanfilippo-ASIP Visiting Lectureship Program. Competitive nominees must have an established and productive research record and generally be a few years past their initial academic appointment. A nomination for the Fred Sanfilippo-ASIP Visiting Lectureship program can be initiated by the individual researcher, their department chair, or the host department chair. For more information on this program or to initiate a nomination, please contact wbcoleman@asip.org.

The nomination package for the Sanfilippo-ASIP Visiting Lectureship Program requires:

  1. the CV of the nominee (providing evidence of funding and publications from the nominee’s laboratory)
  2. a letter of nomination from the department chair (describing the candidate’s potential as a pathobiology researcher)
  3. a letter of support from the hosting department

a plan for the actual visit (including a proposed schedule of meetings with faculty and students).

Kristen Engevik, PhD awarded winner in the FASEB BioArt Competition!

BioArt
Engevik

Join us in congratulating member Kristen Engevik, PhD, of Baylor College of Medicine for winning Second Place for her entry in the the FASEB BioArt Competition. Her entry titled, “Infectious Waves” is a video of rotavirus inducing calcium waves in monkey kidney epithelial (MA104) cells during infection. These MA104 cells contain a genetically encoded calcium indicator (teal). Rotavirus infected cells (magenta) elicit increased calcium (teal) in both infected and neighboring noninfected cells that manifests as waves originating from sites of infection. This is an important communication route during rotavirus infection.

She is a postdoc in Dr. Joseph Hyser’s lab and uses live imaging of calcium signaling (like what we see in this video) as a tool to better understand enteric viral infection and pathogenesis.
