We are pleased to announce that our project on ‘Transcriptional memory and plasticity in mouse embryonic stem cells’ has been awarded a 5-year CIHR grant. Read more about it here, along with other great projects recently awarded at the Life Sciences Institute here at UBC: http://lsi.ubc.ca/2019/01/25/cihr-project-grant-competition-fall-2018-funded-projects/
The Teves lab welcomes Marek Budzynski as the first postdoc to join our group. After finishing his PhD in the Sistonen lab in Finland, Marek joined us on Jan 15, 2019. He is also received funding from the Sigrid Juselius Foundation for his postdoctoral work. Welcome and Congrats to Marek!

We welcome the lab’s first graduate students, James Kwan and Thomas Nguyen. They started September 2018 as Masters students at UBC Department of Biochemistry.
July 15, 2018. Jeffrey Chow joins the Teves lab as our first co-op student. Welcome!
On July 2, 2018, the Teves lab officially opened. Look at those clean bench spaces! Pretty soon, these spaces were filled with boxes. It’s a slow process, but the lab is filling up!
Our lab studies how transcription is maintained and altered over time using the model system of mouse embryonic stem cells. Our research combines cutting-edge technologies including CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene editing, genomics, and single-molecule live-cell imaging to explore the important biological question of transcriptional memory.
