The Blobel Lab is a fun place to do science, with a dedicated and interactive team whose members have very diverse sets of expertise. The lab is integrated with the Penn Epigenetics Institute and collaborates with several labs across the Penn and CHOP research campuses. There are many training opportunities and resources available to lab members.
