Radhakrishnan Lab Summer 2018
Ryan Marcum RYAN MARCUM

IBiS Graduate Student

Cook 4162; x7-1189; Email
Ryan earned his Master's degree at Idaho State University and joined the lab in 2013. His thesis project focuses on the structural basis for the assembly and regulation of the Sin3/HDAC corepressor complex in transcriptional repression.
Nic Daffern NICOLAS DAFFERN

IBiS Graduate Student

Cook 4162; x7-1189; Email
Nic graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Oklahoma State University and joined the lab in 2016. His thesis project focuses on protein motions (aka dynamics) in the ligand-binding domains of nuclear receptors and how these motions contribute towards protein function and conformational transitions.
Jaafar Zaidi ABU JAAFAR ZAIDI

WCAS Senior

Cook 4104; x7-1189; Email
Jaafar is an undergraduate student majoring in biological sciences and has been pursuing independent research for credit since the winter quarter of 2017. Jaafar's project relates to biochemical and biophysical characterizations of protein-DNA interactions involving the NR5A family of the nuclear receptors and their cofactors.
Kelly Zhu KELLY ZHU

WCAS Junior

Cook 4104; x7-1189; Email
Kelly is an undergraduate student and a neuroscience major and has been pursuing independent research for credit since the winter quarter of 2018. Kelly's project involves the characterization of structure, function, and evolution of the NR5A sub-family of nuclear receptors. She is also a 2018-2019 Beckman Scholar.
Maksim Giljen MAKSIM GILJEN

WCAS Junior

Cook 4104; x7-1189; Email
Maks is an undergraduate student majoring in neuroscience and has been pursuing independent research in the lab since winter of 2018. Maks is investigating the role of poorly characterized motifs and domains within evolutionarily-conserved subunits of the Sin3L/HDAC complex.
Megan Palacio MEGAN PALACIO

Senior

Cook 4104; x7-1189; Email

Meg is an undergraduate student from Northern Michigan University interning over summer 2018. Her project is to investigate the effects of mutations on the stability and dynamics of a nuclear receptor ligand-binding domain.

yongbo zhang YONGBO ZHANG

NMR Manager

Tech BG57; x7-1222; Email

Yongbo Zhang is an honorary member of the lab. He joined Northwestern as Manager of the Biological NMR Center in November 2004 after earning his PhD with Mike Zagorski and Frank Sonnichsen at Case Western Reserve University in 2001 followed by a post-doctoral stint with Erik Zuiderweg at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The lab collaborates with Yongbo on a number of projects.
