MBG Peers & Allies
Linda K. Nicholson
Structural biologist who investigates relationships between protien dynamics and function. She currently serves as the MBG DEI Chair.
Mariana Frederica Wolfner
Her research focuses on understanding, at the molecular/gene level, the important reproductive processes that occur around the time when a sperm fertilizes an egg. She currently serves as the MBG Building Community Faculty Chair.
Her lab investigates the molecular basis of aging and age-dependent pathologies. She currently serves as the chair of MBG DEI Improving Recruitment Committee.
Understanding how the molecular structures of proteins enact decisions in the cell is at the heart of his lab's research. Chris currently serves as the chair of MBG DEI Committee.
His research focuses understanding highly conserved MMR systems, which recognize and repair DNA mismatches that arise as the result of DNA replication errors and act in meiotic pro-crossover roles.
