Julius recently became a field member of Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology (BMCB) at Cornell. Cornell’s unique field faculty system is an embodiment of the interdisciplinary spirit throughout the university, and is one of the things that make it truly stand out as a fantastic place to do science. Field faculty are similar to joint appoints at other universities, and field members have all of the privileges of being a member of that department such as advising graduate students, participating in training grants, and helping organize symposia and colloquia.
With this membership, the Lucks Lab will be able to fully integrate within the biology community on campus, and bring molecular and structural biology expertise to the lab. In addition, Julius has already launched exciting collaborations with other labs in the BMCB field that will help to combine RNA biology and engineering into some fascinating breakthroughs!
