Zachary Pincus, PhD – Assistant Professor
Holly Kinser – PhD Student, Biomedical Engineering
Holly is identifying and characterizing novel fluorescent reporter genes that predict future lifespan in C. elegans.
Nicolette Laird – PhD Student, Computational and Systems Biology
Nicolette is developing tools to analyze and quantify spatiotemporal expression patterns in fluorescent reporter genes in C. elegans.
Laura Metz – Staff Scientist
Laura is the Pincus Lab manager. She joined us after playing a similar and indispensable role in Mike Crowder’s lab.
Matt Mosley – PhD Student, Developmental, Regenerative and Stem Cell Biology
Matt is examining early life gene expression patterns in long- vs. short-lived wild-type C. elegans, using microfluidic devices to separate these different cohorts based on predictors of future lifespan.
Nisha Patil – Undergraduate Researcher
Nisha is developing and using new C. elegans culture methods to investigate larval development at high temporal and spatial resolution.
Will Pittman – PhD Student, Biomedical Engineering
Will is developing advanced C. elegans culture techniques in order to examine developmental determinants of future lifespan.
Isaac Plutzer – Undergraduate Researcher
Isaac is investigating inter-individual variability in transgenic C. elegans models of protein aggregation disorders.
Drew Sinha – MD/PhD Student, Biomedical Engineering
Drew is studying the connections between lifespan and and good health in both wild-type and longevity-mutant C. elegans.
Logan Tan – Undergraduate Researcher
Logan is developing software and lab protocols and tools to dramatically increase our experimental throughput.
