Current Lab Members
John Albeck || Bio
John is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology. He joined UC Davis in the summer of 2013.
Michael studies how cells internally process information in signaling pathways, using signal processing and model-based computational techniques. He completed his PhD at Purdue University and joined the lab at the start of 2014.
Alex studies the dynamics of signaling cross-talk between cancer and stromal cells with a focus on exosome-mediated intracellular communication. He obtained his PhD and DVM from the University of California, Davis and currently works as a joint Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Mina Bissell and Dr. Albeck.
Didem studies natural variation in Insulin signalling and its effects on health using Drosophila melanogaster as a model. She completed her PhD at Harvard University, and joined the Albeck and Begun labs starting 2015.
Taryn is a 5th year graduate student in the BMCDB graduate group. Her research is focused on how cells use MAPK dynamics to encode downstream gene expression changes.
Breanne is a 5th year graduate student in the BMCDB graduate group. She studies how cells coordinate metabolism and growth.
Nont is a 2nd year graduate student in the BMCDB graduate group.
Carolyn manages lab operations, and supports cell culture and microscopy experiments.
Heather is a Junior Specialist supporing a variety of cell culture and live-cell experiements.
Savannah Joy Tobin
Savannah is a Junior Specialist supporting projects on cancer therapeutics as well as the effect of extracellular matrix composition on intracellular signaling. She graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelors in Biology in 2017.
Kevin performed bioinformatics and image processing support (2013-2015).
Marta performed molecular biology, cell culture and live-cell experiments relating to ERK signaling (2013-2014).
