    continued studying mutualistic symbiotic plants and fungi in the neotropics during my master s which focused on the molecular ecology and systematics of the fungal genus Clavulina in Guyana I started working in the Heitman lab in January 2013 on a project aimed at understanding the function of the pheromone receptor like gene CPR2 in Cryptococcus neoformans The identification of potential mates and evaluation of their suitability for sexual reproduction

    May 2011 I began my work in Dr Heitman s lab in September 2008 under the guidance of Dr Lukasz Kozubowski My research project focused on examining the roles of the calcineurin signaling pathway and the C2 domain protein Cts1 in high temperature growth and virulence of the pathogenic fungus Cryptococcus neoformans Calcineurin is an evolutionarily conserved Ca2 calmodulin dependent serine threonine specific protein phosphatase that plays a key role in high temperature growth cell wall organization and mating in Cryptococcus neoformans However much remains to be elucidated about its function including its downstream targets and its interactions with other signaling pathways important for C neoformans growth in mammalian hosts In a previous study conducted in the Heitman lab the C2 domain containing phospholipid binding protein Cts1 was identified and shown to restore growth at 37 C in a calcineurin mutant strain when overexpressed My project focused on further examining the link between the calcineurin pathway and Cts1 We demonstrated that Cts1 is a phosphoprotein and functions in the calcineurin signaling circuit during high temperature stress Additionally we examined the localization of Cts1 and explored potential roles of Cts1 in cytokinesis endocytosis and mRNA processing I am currently a medical

    in April 2006 under the guidance of Dr Chaoyang Xue I worked on two projects the first one involving a mutant library screen and the second one involving a glucose sensor I screened approximately 2700 strains in an agrobacterium mediated mutagenesis library provided by Dr Alex Idnurm My goal was to identify inositol insensitive mutants by monitoring the mating filamentation of the strains on MS 200mm inositol media I also

    trees Our work showed that pigeon guano can support the growth of C neoformans and C gattii and that a brown pigment related to melanin a key virulence factor is produced by both species when grown on pigeon guano C neoformans however can also mate on pigeon guano while C gattii mating is dramatically reduced The fact that C neoformans is able to survive and reproduce on pigeon guano makes
