B.S., Peking University, China, Biological Sciences
Ph.D., Duke University, Cell Biology
Research Interest: Cellular and molecular mechanisms of small cell lung cancer progression and metastases.
B.S., University of California at San Diego, Biochemistry and Cell Biology, and, B.S in Social Psychology
Research Interests: I'm interested in basic science research, in the context of cancer biology, that can lead to novel therapeutics.
B.S., Stanford University, Biology
Research Interests: I'm interested in mechanisms underlying changes in cancer cell fate decisions, especially in relation to changes in proliferation, metastasis, and differentiation state.
B.S., Brown University, Neuroscience (with Honors)
Research Interests: I’m interested in understanding environmental and intrinsic factors that aid metastatic seeding and colonization with an emphasis on brain metastasis.
Myung Chang Lee (Noah Lee)
B.A., Dartmouth College, Biology (High Honors)

Rotation Student 2021-2022
Gina Nicole Duronio
B.S., Northeastern University, double major in Math and Cell and Molecular Biology
Research Interests: I'm interested in understanding the role of cancer stem cells in disease development and the importance of cell state plasticity and stem cell signaling in determining processes such as metastasis and the development of therapeutic resistance in cancer..
Visiting Student Researcher
B.S., JMU Würzburg, Biochemistry
M.A., JMU Würzburg, Molecular Oncology (ongoing)
Research Interest: My research insterests focuses on the molecular mechanisms that underlie cell malignancies and diseases, as well as how these altered pathways might be used to develop novel therapeutic approaches.
B.S., Texas A&M, Biochemistry
Research Interests: Since learning about organelles in seventh grade I fell in love with cell biology. I feel fortunate to have a rewarding career studying the protein pathways of disease, which had included analysis of the proteins involved in pigment formation, antibody drug therapy, and how certain drug treatments affect small cell lung cancer.
B.S., University of California at Santa Barbara, Neuroscience (with High Honors)
Research Interests: My research interests include the neuropathology of neurodegenerative diseases and brain cancers.
