Lab Alumni

We are proud to celebrate the past and present achievements of our lab alumni!

Please keep in touch. We love to hear from you.

Dave was a postdoc in our lab from 2012 to 2016.

 

He discovered the ability of disordered proteins to generate steric pressure and drive membrane remodeling.

Dave is now a Senior Scientist at Merck & Co. in New Jersey where he works on the development of biologic therapeutics.

Dr. David Busch

Dr. Avinash Gadok

Dr. Avinash Gadok

Avi was a graduate student in our lab from 2012 to 2017.

 

She developed liposomes that use the connexin pathway to deliver chemotherapeutics to the cellular cytoplasm.

Avi worked as a Staff Scientist at Flagship Pioneering (Boston, MA) and is now a consultant with Boston Consulting Group.

Dr. Wilton Snead

Wilton was a graduate student in our lab from 2013 to 2018.

 

He discovered the ability of steric pressure among membrane-bound proteins to drive membrane fission.

Wilton is now a Postdoc in the lab of Amy Gladfelter at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Dr. Zachary Imam

Zach was a graduate student in our lab from 2014 to 2018.

 

He developed liposomes that use the membrane phase separation to trigger membrane fusion, driving molecular delivery to the cytoplasm.

Zach is now a Postdoc at Sandia National Labs, Albuquerque, NM.

Dr. Chi (Aimee) Zhao

Aimee was a graduate student in our lab from 2014 to 2019.

 

She characterized the impact of receptor-receptor binding interactions on endocytosis, and developed novel, cell-derived targeted drug delivery particles.

Aimee is now a staff scientist at Emerald Cloud Lab, an SF Bay Area biotech startup.
