Zhongyuan Tu successfully defended his MSc thesis entitled “Characterization of MARCO mediated endocytosis”, making him the Bowdish lab’s second graduate student to graduate. Longtime followers of bowdish.ca will know that Zhongyuan was the very first student to join the Bowdish lab as an undergraduate thesis and then MSc student. Zhongyuan’s thesis involved tackling how the phagocytic receptor MARCO sends signals through the cell. Zhongyuan will work until January in the Bowdish lab to finish up important parts of his project and he is currently looking at labs in the U.K. or possibly Canada to do a PhD. Congratulations and good luck Zhongyuan!
