As they say – “when it rains it pours”, and in the Sparks lab it is pouring amazing new team members! This month we welcome Wenbo Zhao to the lab as a Master’s student. Wenbo comes to us from the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology graduate program, and has an interest in Data Mining and Text Mining. Wenbo will be co-advised with Dr. Cecilia Arighi and Dr. Chuming Chen, who will provide him with amazing guidance on building databases and data mining. We are excited for the new and different skillsets that Wenbo will bring to the lab.
We also just finished interviewing PhD candidates to join the lab this Fall. We were lucky to have three excellent candidates come visit us in Newark, and are excited that one of them will be joining us this Fall. All of the paperwork is in the works, and we will follow up with an official announcement after everything is completed. So, be on the lookout for another update soon!
