Meet the Lab

Our lab consists of postdoctoral fellows and students, as well as lab managers and research assistants. Our postdoctoral fellows and students come from both the US and abroad, with a large European contingency. Students are from several graduate programs through the University of Cincinnati, including cancer and cell biology, molecular genetics, and molecular developmental biology. The laboratory is a particularly rich training environment, with more than 10 past postdoctoral fellows matriculating into academic research positions; many now run their own laboratories. Graduating PhD students have also gone on to top academic laboratories for postdoctoral training, as well as matriculating directly into company-based positions.

The laboratory is a rich scientific environment with some of the world’s best-trained scientists, and that, coupled with outstanding core support and institutional resources, makes our lab’s collective environment second to none.
