Kristin Eckel-Mahan, Ph.D. (Principal Investigator)

_DSC4923.JPG
A usually compliant lark.... and no i was not sleeping during seminar.     Kristin received her PhD from the University of Washington, Seattle, where she studied the role of circadian MAPK signaling in hippocampal learning and memory in the lab of Daniel Storm. She completed her postdoctoral training at the University of California, Irvine, in the laboratory of Paolo Sassone-Corsi, where she studied the relationship between nutrient metabolism and the hepatic circadian clock. She joined the Center for Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases at the Institute of Molecular Medicine in May 2015.

Happy as a lark.     Aleix received his PhD from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Catalonia, Spain where he specialized in Nutrigenomics. There, he studied the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of polyphenols, and how they influence the core clock machinery in several tissues. He joined the Eckel-Mahan lab in October of 2015. Aleix is currently studying the mechanisms by which nutrients influence the clock and its alignment across highly metabolic tissues.

Someone has to set the standard- normal but not average.     Baharan acquired her PhD from the University of Mysore, India, where she studied circulating antigen H11 as a cancer diagnostic. She completed a first postdoctoral fellowship at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute, where she studied mechanisms underlying folate stress-induced apoptosis. She joined the Eckel-Mahan lab in January of 2016. Baharan’s major focus involves elucidating circadian strategies to prevent or slow the growth of specific liver cancers.

Just a tad on the owl side. But then, don’t organic chemistry test grades seem more important at this stage? (But we are changing Samay’s mind about that. Or are we?)
