After graduation, in their own words:

My post doc is going very well so far. I am learning a lot and the genetic screen my project is built around is already giving interesting results. I am applying to several of the prestigious cancer fellowships now and hope I can secure individual funding at some point this year. Either way I think this will be a very productive position for me.
