Rotated in Marc Hammarlund and Janghoo Lim's lab. Pursuing a PhD in Genetics while in Mustafa Khokha's lab doing functional gene analysis on genes with a potential developmental role in heterotaxy.
Delfina González, BA
Delfina graduated with a BA in Biology from Pomona College in 2017 after completing thesis research in C. elegans eggshell formation. She did summer undergraduate research on C. elegans centrosome formation in Karen Oegema's lab at UCSD and drosophila CRISPRa technology in Norbert Perrimon's lab at Harvard. While at Yale, she rotated with Jen-Ju Chung and Patrick Lusk before joining Mustafa Khokha's lab where she is studying the role of Auxilin, a clathrin uncoating protein, in left-right...
Alexandra MacColl Garfinkel
Attended Lewis & Clark College for a Bachelors degree double majoring in Biology and Psychology with a focus on Neuroscience. Worked in the lab of Connie Cepko for three years developing gene therapies to combat Retinitis Pigmentosa, a form of genetic blindness, before starting at Yale University. Now pursuing a PhD in Genetics in the Khokha lab, performing functional analysis of disease candidate genes with potential roles in heart development and heterotaxy.
