This post is a bit late, but here are a few photos from our 2014 Heinrich Lab Holiday Party at Old Town Pizza.
This post is a bit late, but we’re still very excited to share this with you!
On December 4th, 2014, Ashley and her family welcomed their new baby girl, Ramona Belle, weighing 9 lbs 2 oz and 21.5 inches long. We couldn’t be happier for this beautiful family!

Our talented 4th-year graduate student, Lillian Klug, recently contributed her thoughts about future prospects for PhD students in this OHSU article, “Alternate Reality.” Regardless of which path they choose, we can’t wait to see what’s next for our amazing PhD candidates!
The Heinrich Lab is happy to welcome Jay Hoffarth, our returning summer research assistant! Jay graduated from PSU with a BS in Biology in June 2014 and plans to take a year off before pursuing a graduate degree in Biology. He is not only adept at folding proteins, as you can see in this photo, he is also incredibly efficient at making buffers in a hurry, doing Western Blots, generating DNA out of thin air (well, the e. Coli help a little), and generally maintaining a baseline of sanity in the lab. Thank you, Jay! Please never leave.
On Wednesday, May 14th, we welcomed GIST patients and their supporters for the Annual GCRF Breakfast and Meeting at OHSU. This is our favorite event of the year, as it provides us with the opportunity to gather with patients and discuss our latest research endeavors. As a result of their enthusiastic fundraising efforts, the GCRF presented Dr. Heinrich and Dr. Corless with an outstanding donation of $100,000 this year. We are so privileged to be included among the beneficiaries of this amazing organization and with their generous support, we can continue to work to find a cure for GIST.
We hope you can join us for the 2014 Annual GCRF Breakfast at OHSU!
