Patrick cofounds the Arc Institute, a new research institution for curiosity-driven biomedical science and technology.
Our new pre-print with Bhatt/Bintu/Bassik labs, on “Large-scale discovery of recombinases for integrating DNA into the human genome” is now online! Congrats to Matt, Alison, Josh!
Our paper with the Doudna and Savage labs, on dual CRISPR nucleases for rapid and sensitive one-pot CRISPR diagnostics, is on the cover of Nature Chemical Biology!
Welcome to Nicholas Perry and Michael Herschl, two new graduate students. Nick and Michael come to the lab from HMS/MGH and Stanford.
Sita Chandrasekaran is named a 2021 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow!
We report a point-of-care system for SARS-CoV-2 viral detection that integrates disposable microfluidic cartridges with real-time fluorescent detection.
We report genome-scale, bidirectional functional screens for COVID-19 host factors, discovering mucin glycoproteins as a prominent antiviral network that restricts viral entry. A wonderful collaboration with the Konermann lab at Stanford and Harris lab at UC Berkeley. So much glycobiology to discover!
With the Doudna and Savage labs at UC Berkeley, we report new mechanisms for amplification-free CRISPR diagnostics with tandem RNA-targeting nucleases
Happy New Year! Welcome to Qi Dang and Matt Durrant, who join the lab as a staff scientist and postdoctoral fellow!
We report a MedRxiv pre-print on rapid viral diagnostics for COVID-19. Congratulations to Shreeya, Alison, and Sita!
Our lab receives a second R01, for structure-function studies of CRISPR systems. Thank you to the NIH for the support.
Alison Fanton is named a NSF Graduate Fellow. Congratulations, Alison!
Our study of COVID-19 antibody tests is now published in Nature Biotechnology.
The lab is funded by Fastgrants for COVID-19 therapeutic and diagnostic development
Our pre-print on validating serology tests for SARS-CoV-2 is online at https://covidtestingproject.org/ and highlighted in the New York Times, CNN, The Scientist, Berkeley News, CBS, Yahoo News, and The Guardian.
Thank you to the Curci Foundation for funding our COVID-19 response effort at IGI!
Exciting news! The Hsu lab will be moving to the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley in Fall 2019. We will be housed in the Innovative Genomics Institute.
We are hiring at all levels (postdocs, graduate students, research assistants)! If you're interested in joining our lab, visit our Join us page.
Our CasRx plasmids are all Blue Flame on Addgene, and have been distributed to over 250 labs worldwide! Get them here: https://www.addgene.org/Patrick_Hsu/
Peter Lotfy joins Harvard BBS for his PhD studies. Go Peter!
Eleanor Wang, an undergrad in the lab, wins the 2019 Barry Goldwater Scholarship.
Congratulations to Eleanor!
Tom Alsaigh is named a KL2 Clinical Scholar! Go Tom!
Out in Nature Communications: we interrogate the specificity of the therapeutically important S. aureus Cas9 ortholog with ~90,000 guide RNA-mismatched target pairs.
