The Tan lab attended Local Traffic 2023 - the 22nd annual Pittsburgh Symposium on Membrane Traffic.
Haoxiang presented his work at the Aging Institute Research in Progress Seminar. Congratulations, Haoxiang!
Nailah A. Simmons joined our lab as an undergraduate researcher. Nailah is currently a sophomore student at Pitt. As a public health major on the pre-med track, she is especially interested in pinpointing and analyzing risk factors that contribute to disease and aging. Welcome, Nailah!
Dr. Bo Lyu joined our lab as a senior postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Lyu holds a Ph.D. in genetics and has extensive research experience in molecular and cell biology. Welcome, Dr. Lyu!
Our first review article is accepted by Trends in Cell Biology. Congratulations!

The Tan lab joined VMI/Aging Institute holiday party at Sienna Mercato. Cheers!
Jinrui (Jeffrey) Xun joined our lab as a visiting scholar. He is an MD candidate from Xiangya Medical School. He is interested in cellular stress responses that could be potentially targeted for patients' health. Welcome, Jeffrey!
Our recent work on lysosomal repair is published online today at Nature.
In this study, we identified the PITT (phosphoinositide-initiated membrane tethering and lipid transport) pathway as an essential mechanism for rapid lysosomal repair. Congratulations!
