  • Jeffrey Davis, Vander Heiden Lab: Jeff studies the metabolic programs that determine cell fate acquisition and differentiation potential in development and cancer.
  • Daniel Goulet, Hemann Lab: Using a mouse model of B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Daniel’s work aims at identifying the tumor cell intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute to drug resistance.
  • Jasmin Kruell, Koehler Lab: Jasmin’s research is focused on targeting the transcription factor Myb using small molecules in acute myeloid leukemia.
  • Ingred Goretti Rica, Yaffe Lab: Ingred is studying the role of a specific population of neutrophils with immunosuppressive properties in the tumor microenvironment and trauma.
  • Tigist Tamir, White Lab: In her work, Tigist uses a multi-omics approach to understand functional modifications on proteins in cancer resistance.
  • Ye Zhang, Manalis Lab: Ye is developing and utilizing microfluidic platforms to measure biophysical properties of tumor cells.
