The senseless killing of Daunte Wright in Minnesota, the abusive and unwarranted treatment of Army Second Lieutenant Caron Nazario during a traffic stop, the preposterous defense for George Floyd’s murderer, the fatal shooting of 13 year old Adam Toledo, and the opening of an art exhibit (Promise, Witness, Remembrance) to honor innocent victim Breonna Taylor are evidence of the pervasive racism and unrelenting police brutality against black Americans.
We, the members of the MSB EoE committee, express our deep sympathy for any person suffering from racial trauma and we stand in solidarity with those impacted. None of us are free until we are all free.
Huy Nguyen, former MSB/MCB student and Bosco Lab alum, recently launched a new biotech company Acuity Spatial Genomics | Visualize the 3D Genome. After earning his Ph.D., Huy went off to do a post-doc with Ting Wu and George Church at Harvard Medical School. While there, he co-invented a new in situ sequencing and genomic visualization technology called OligoFISSEQ.
Acuity's super-resolution technology has the ability to elucidate chromatin architecture, such as TADs and loops or enhancer-promoter complexes, and reveal their 3D topologies and conformation.

What To Watch
The Flea Tapeworm(Dipylidium caninum) Plain and SimpleA heartwarming tale of tapeworms and fleas.
Following the outbreak of a virus that wipes out the majority of the human population, a young woman documents her family's new life in quarantine and tries to protect her infected sister.
This Week in Parasitism (TWiP) is a podcast about eukaryotic parasites started by Vincent Racaniello and Dickson Despommier. Daniel Griffin, MD joined the team in January 2015 and added not only his expertise in infectious diseases, but began a new feature of TWiP, the case study.
What's gotten into you? In this hour, Radiolab uncovers a world full of parasites.
Could parasites be the shadowy hands that pull the strings of life? We explore nature's moochers, with tales of lethargic farmers, zombie cockroaches, and even mind-controlled humans (kinda, maybe). And we examine claims that some parasites may actually be good for you.
