Notable recent achievements

First author publication:

Lu, D.; Parisi, L. R.; Gokcumen, O.; Atilla-Gokcumen, G. E., SREBP activation contributes to fatty acid accumulations in necroptosis. RSC Chem. Biol. 2023, 4 (4), 310-322.

Research highlight

My research revolves around the role lipids play during necroptosis, particularly investigating the causes of lipid accumulation observed during necroptosis.

As a graduate student at UB, I enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with various intellectual teammates in my lab. In addition, I also enjoyed taking brief coffee walks on campus in the afternoon as part of my daily lab routine.

Outside of lab, I enjoy travelling to new places and seeing scenes that I have not seen before. I also enjoy watching movies together with friends.

Congratulations, Daniel!
