Jenny earned her PhD from the University of Kansas in 2009 and joined the lab in the same year. She is currently investigating the structural aspects of the CREB-TORC interaction and the interaction between CREB and its diverse DNA targets (CREs).
Ryan earned his Master's degree at Idaho State University and joined the lab in 2013. Current projects focus on the assembly and activity of the Sin3/HDAC corepressor complex in transcriptional repression.
Michael is an undergraduate student majoring in chemistry and has been pursuing independent research in the lab since the summer of 2011. Michael's work focuses on characterizing the structure and function of various members of the Sin3 transcriptional corepressor complex. In his spare time, he enjoys learning about peptidomimetics and rational, structure-guided development of inhibitors of protein-protein interactions.
Yujia Ding is a second year transfer student at Northwestern, currently a senior working towards a degree in Biology, with a concentration in Molecular Biology and Genetics. Current projects include studying the oligomerization properties of the Sds3 coiled-coil domains and looking to understand its potential interactions with BRMS1.
Maciek is an undergraduate student majoring in Chemistry, Biology, and Integrated Science and has been pursuing independent research in the lab since Spring 2012. Current projects include Pf1 FHA domain structure characterization and biochemical and biophysical studies of interactions involving the Sin3S corepressor complex.
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.
