Kei Adachi, Ph.D.,Nakai Lab
During his PhD study at Nagasaki University in Japan, Dr. Adachi studied on the development of AIDS vaccine using influenza virus as a vector and the characteristics of fish nodavirus (Betanodavirus). 

Amanda M. Esch, Ph.D., Spellman Lab
Amanda obtained her Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011. She is currently working with Drs. Paul Spellman and Joe Gray at OHSU. Her research interests include mass cytometry and mass-tag imaging to investigate mechanisms of drug resistance in breast cancer. oreMoreAmanda obtained her Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2011.

Amy Farrell, Ph.D., Sears Lab
Amy received her BS from the College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, Virginia) in May of 2000.  She then went to the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha to pursue her PhD.  At UNMC, she worked in the laboratory of Dr. Judith Christman where she studied DNA methylation.

Suzanne Fei, Ph.D., Spellman Lab
As an undergraduate, Suzi double majored in Computer Science and Biochemistry/Biophysics, hoping to find a career that would allow her to combine her fascination of the living cell with her enjoyment of computer programming.

Jared Fischer, Ph.D., Liskay Lab
Jared received a BS in Zoology and a BA in Chemistry from the Miami (OH) University in 2003.  He received a PhD from the University of Cincinnati in 2008.

Ellen M. Langer, Ph.D., Sears Lab
Dr. Langer performed her doctoral research in the lab of Dr. Gregory Longmore at Washington University in St. Louis, where she identified a role for Ajuba LIM proteins as corepressors of the Snail family of proteins.

Yuhuang Daniel Li, M.D., Ph.D., Dai Lab
After his medical training in 2007, Dr. Li joined Professor Chaohong Li’s lab in Sun Yat-sen University, China. During his PhD study, Dr. Li focused on molecular and biochemical mechanisms underlying the regulation of MAPKs pathway in multiple pathopoiesis, like metabolic syndrome.

Juan Liang, Ph.D., Sears Lab
During her PhD study, Dr. Liang focused on the molecular mechanism of canonical Wnt signaling pathway. She identified a novel protein that could regulate the function of LRP6, the Wnt coreceptor and elucidated the underlying mechanisms.
