Dr. Molly Evans, Ph.D., has joined the lab as a postdoctoral fellow! Molly comes to us from the opposite side of Chicago, where she recently defended her Ph.D. dissertation, “Expanding high-throughput sequencing to investigate RNA biology,” in the lab of Dr. Tao Pan (University of Chicago, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics). During her Ph.D. training, Molly developed new high-throughput sequencing methods to interrogate different features in RNA, including tRNA charging and mRNA and tRNA modifications.
Molly brings her expertise and interest in high-throughput sequencing methods development and RNA structure/function to the Lucks lab. Outside of the lab, she enjoys swimming in Lake Michigan, Sci-fi movies and Dinosaur Comics.
Welcome to the lab Molly!
