Amber Baldwin

Lab Manager/PRA

 

Amber joined the lab in Nov 2017. She has extensive experience in next-generation sequencing through here previous work at Tempus and on the PsychENCODE project.

 

Amber is developing a streamlined and cost-effective sequencing technology that we can use broadly within the lab. Additionally,  Amber supports the development of many projects in the lab.

Elisabeth Murphy

PRA

Libby finished her bachelor’s degrees in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology and in music at CU Boulder in 2019. She joined the lab later the same year and continues to perform music in her free time.


Libby is studying the RNA targets of the RBP ZFP36L2.

Kathryn Walters

MOLB Grad Student

Kathryn grew up in western North Dakota and got her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from North Dakota State University. She then joined the BSP program at Anschutz and now is part of the MOLB program.

 

Kathryn is studying the RBP Musashi-2 and it's ability to regulate human steroidogenesis.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Marcin is from Poznań, Poland. 

Marcin is primarily a computational biologist working on numerous genomic datasets and projects in the lab.

Join us

 

We are always looking for driven scientists to join the team. Projects in the lab span a wide range of techniques drawing from basic molecular biology and biochemistry to genomics and computational biology. We try to think about biological problems in a quantitative manner as much as possible.

 

Postdocs that are interested - Please send a current CV and give me a sense of your research experience, why you are interested in the lab, and what you hope to study.

Thanks for your interest!

Neel can accept grad students through the following graduate programs:
-Molecular Biology
-Cancer Biology
-Biomedical Sciences Program
-Medical Sciences Training Program

Kimberly Wellman, Phd (MOLB)

Kim identified RBPs regulate human steroidogenesis, focusing on ZFP3L2. She graduated Spring 2022.

Kim is now back in Seattle working in a biotech company.

Graduate Students

Kimberly Callahan (MOLB), MSc

Kim worked on the role of pseudouridylation in steroidogenic cells. She is now a scientist at the National Jewish Hospital in the genomics core.

Rotation Students:

Arely Diaz (MOLB)

Arely launched a project investigating the role of a steroidogenic lncRNA in the survival cancer cells during here summer internship and rotation. She is now in the Reis lab.

Charlie Moffet (MOLB)

Charlie was investigating methods to identify pseudouridine in RNA and the mechanism by which TRUB1, a psuedouridine synthase, suppresses aldosterone production. They are now in the Taliaferro Lab.
