Zachary Pincus, PhD – Assistant Professor
Rachel Allen – Staff Scientist
Rachel manages production of transgenic C. elegans in the lab, including developing and improving tools and techniques for construct production and transgenesis.
Julia Hong – Undergraduate Researcher
Julia is examining whether there is a relationship between developmental and adult phenotypes in C. elegans.
Nick Jensen – PhD Student, Computational and Systems Biology
Nick has a broad portfolio of data analysis projects, including quantification of Zebrafish swimming patterns; cellular phenotyping; and analysis of temporal patterns of reporter expression in C. elegans.
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.
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 the dynamics of physiological decline with aging in C. elegans.
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.
