Students of Biomedical Sciences
Alum, Loren Brown completed the Specialization program and conferred his degree in 2014.
I will be utilizing techniques from traditiona\ virology, structural biology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry and mass spectrometry. I will attempt to sttucturally charactc1izc the interaction between a... more
The Antagonistic Gene Paralogs Upf3a and Upf3b Govern Nonsense-Mediated RNA Decay
Alum, Gleb Mortovetsky earned the Ph.D. Specialization in Multi-Scale Biology in 2016
Alum Devendra Mistry earned the PhD Specialization in Multi-Scale Biology in 2011 with thesis The Mollecular Mechanism Underlying the Gondaotropin Releasing Hormone Pulse Sesitivity of Follicle Stimulating... more
Approximately 2-3 million years ago, our human ancestors lost the function of CMAH– a gene that remains fully intact in our most closely related species, the bonobos and chimpanzees (1). CMAH codes... more
My project currently has three objectives. I will begin by first determining how current POPs interact with P-gp at the molecular level, which will require P-gp co-crystallization with these compounds. From these... more
Alum Eleen Shum earned the Ph.D. with Specialization in Multi-Scale Biology in 2015. Dissertation "Physiological Role of the UPF3 in Gene Paralogs in Nonsense-Mediated RNA Decay"
My long term goal is to bridge the gap between molecular and cellular neurobiology with systems-level neuroscience. In particular, I want to understand how biochemical changes in specific subsets of neurons can exert... more
