Former Graduate Students

Alex Davies was a BMB graduate student. His project focused on Hsp90-Sgt1 mediated assembly of kinetochores in mammalian cells. Since graduating, Alex has been pursuing his VMD degree at UC Davis and his post-doctoral work in the Kaplan lab. 






Dan Rozelle was a CDB graduate student. His project was focused on regulation of kinesin 5 motors by chromosomes passenger complexes. Dan is now a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. John Connor's lab at Boston University. 








Christy Caldwell was a BMB graduate student. Her project was focused on wheher dominant APC mutations cause mitotic defects in intestinal cyrpt cells. 







Scott Thomas was a BMB graduate student. His project was focused on how chromosomes passenger complexes form and regulate septic dynamics in mitosis. Scott is now a post-doctoral fellow at UCSF. 







Becky Otley-Green was a microbiology graduate student. Her project was to determine how APC mutations affect microtubule dynamics and chromosome segregation. Becky is now a post-doctoral fellow in Karen Oegema's lab at UCSD. 








Annette Lentz was a BMB graduate student. Annette was tragically lost before she could finish her Ph.D. Her enthuisasm for science and life remains unforgotten.
