Current Lab Members

Postdoctoral Researchers

Graduate students

  • Joanne Lau (Doctoral Student, Micro Program) is currently identifying regions of ClpXP regulators critical for their function.
  • Jing Liu (Doctoral Student, MCB) is studying how factors important for DNA replication are degraded.
  • Robert Vass (Doctoral Student, MCB) is discovering how ClpXP processes proteins during cell-cycle.
  • Kamal Joshi (Doctoral Student, MCB) is defining how protein localization influences protein degradation.

Undergraduate students

  • Brian Shin (class of 2013, Biology major) is a work-study student in the lab.
  • Ying Zhang (class of 2013, BMB major) is working to understand common features of response regulators in different pathways.
  • Daniel DiCorpo (class of 2013, BMB major) is determining how cells respond to unbalanced protein degradation.
  • Justin Li (class of 2014, BMB major) just joined the lab.


  • Laura I Francis (senior advisor) - provides needed guidance, insight, and general sanity.
