The lab is excited to welcome a new postdoc — Grace Liu, who has transplanted herself from Boston, where she was a student in the Sabatini and Perrimon labs. As a graduate student, Grace did some beautiful work identifying nutrient sensors in Drosophila. For her postdoc, Grace is excited to pursue new pathways of “effector-triggered immunity” in vertebrates. Grace is happily adjusting to life in California—and gloating to all her friends on the East Coast. She is looking forward to seeing Die Frau Ohne Schatten at the SF Opera in a few months.
