Congratulations in the utmost to Dr. Andrew Chen, who successfully defended his thesis this week!!
Dr. Chen was the first graduate student to join the Koehler lab at the Koch Institute at MIT and is the first to meet the full requirements for the PhD in Biological Engineering at MIT from our group. His thesis, entitled Discovery and Characterization of a Small Molecule that Modulates c-Myc Mediated Transcription via Max Homodimer Stabilization, detailed his work in the development of our newly published chemical probe, KI-MS2-008, and the exciting work he pioneered to understand the impact of this molecule on MYC/MAX networks and transcriptional regulation.
Congratulations on a job well done!!
