Our Featured Research Trainee for May, Namrata Kumar, PhD, shares her interest in DNA damage repair and the ways in which diversity enriches science.

Research in the Weitzman Lab aims to understand host responses to virus infection, and the cellular environment encountered and manipulated by viruses. The lab studies multiple viruses in an integrated experimental approach that combines biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and cell biology.

The goals of research in the Bassing Lab are to elucidate the genetic, epigenetic, and biochemical mechanisms by which mammals develop their immune systems while suppressing autoimmunity and genomic aberrations that cause leukemia or lymphoma.
