New paper in NAR

Check out our latest paper in NAR! This work was made possible by the collaborative effort of these amazing people in the Beal and Fisher labs: Erin, Agya, Xander, Herra, Aashrita, and Victorio! Congratulations, everyone!

ADAR activation by inducing a syn conformation at guanosine adjacent to editing site

Natalie gets the NIH T32 Training Grant!

Natalie is one of three trainees awarded with the Chemical Biology Program training grant for the 2022-2023 academic year. During this fellowship, Natalie will be cross training with Dr. Igor Vorobyov, who works with voltage gated ion channels. Voltage gated ion channels are heavily edited by ADAR2, but the impact editing has on the channels is not well known. Natalie will be doing atomistic modeling of edited and non-edited channels to try to determine the impact editing has on these proteins.

Congratulations, Natalie!

Graduation of Dr. Erin Doherty!

Congratulations, Dr. Erin Doherty, on earning your Ph.D. degree! We’re excited to see you  continue your amazing work at the Doudna lab as a post-doctoral fellow. The Beal lab will always be proud of you!

Congratulations, Agya and Erin!

Congratulations to Agya for getting the Floyd and Mary Schwall Dissertation Year Fellowship in Medical Research and to Erin for receiving the David and Ruth Volman Graduate Fellowship in Chemistry! The Beal lab is so proud of you two!


Graduation of Dr. Kevin Pham!

Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Pham on earning his Ph.D. degree! We’re all so excited on your post doctoral research journey at Portugal and you’ll surely be missed!!!


Time for a new group photo!

Erin and Herra win poster awards!

Congratulations, Erin and Herra, for winning poster awards during the recently concluded Miller Symposium 2022. Well done!

Beal lab goes to Deaminet 2022!

Got to hear some amazing science and meet some experts in the base editing field (including ADAR pioneer, Kazuko Nishikura!) at the Deaminet 2022!


Erin wins a poster award!

A big congratulations to Erin for winning a poster award during the recently concluded  Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society Annual Meeting. Great job, Erin!

Beal lab’s fancy amidite/CPG cabinet
