Carlos Cosme Jr.


I'm currently a Postgraduate Research Associate in the Kaminski lab of Yale's Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine (PCCSM) Department. I'm a 2019 honors graduate of Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts. My honors thesis work sought to better understand the functional differences between the two main C. elegans gamma-secretase complexes using a S. cerevisiae reconstitution system. Prior to that, I spent a summer at Vanderbilt University studying the role of RAD51 in DNA double-stranded break repair in yeast. Outside of the lab, I enjoy training for and racing triathlons, road races, soccer, basketball, and consuming copious amounts of trashy television.
