Meet the Undergrads!

Here in the Wu lab, we are so lucky to work with dedicated, hard-working undergraduates. Get to know our current students:

Emily Nakayama is a rising senior and has worked with us for 2 years. She majors in Biophysics and is working on improving single-protein visualization and degradation using AID2 in the lab. When she’s not studying or on the microscopes, she likes to figure skate and do kendo.

Marie Wei is a rising Junior and has been in the lab for 1 year. She majors in Molecular & Cellular Biology and Classics. The goal of her project is to optimize SINAPS with drug-inducible constructs and improved fluorescent proteins, and she is a talented artist and translator. When she isn’t pipetting, or studying, she likes running long distances and playing the clarinet, oboe, and piano.

Juliana Taxter is our newest undergraduate member and joined the lab this spring. She is a rising Junior majoring in Molecular & Cellular Biology with a minor in Applied Math and Statistics. Her project aims to develop a drug-inducible RNA decay tool to study the translation of decaying mRNAs, and she plays on the Blue Jay’s Women’s Soccer team. When she’s not cloning or on the soccer field, she loves to knit and play the guitar.
