Markus Grompe Lab Members
Annelise is a Research Assistant in the Oregon Stem Cell Center. She serves as the Lead Surgical Technician and DCM liaison for a number of projects in the Grompe Lab, including the Tyrosinemia and Fanconi Anemia studies. She previously worked in the laboratory of Dr. Scott Adams at his company, Veterinary Medicine Research and Development (VMRD), doing various diagnostic assays, and background disease research. As an undergraduate, she undertook research focusing on the differing metabolic rates of crustaceans and Apodichthys flavidus in aquatic and aerobic environments. Annelise received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Puget Sound in 2008, where she was a Presidential Scholar. She plans to pursue a graduate degree in Animal Behavior and Conservation Biology.
Branden is a graduate student in the Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology (PMCB) and the joint MD-PhD program. He grew up in Portland and got his start in biomedical research as a high school summer intern at OHSU. He went on to earn a degree in Biological Sciences in 2004 from Stanford University where he studied regulation of hippocampal neurogenesis. Prior to joining the MD-PhD program at OHSU, Branden spent 4 years researching tumor-associated angiogenesis at Genentech, Inc. in South San Francisco, California. His research interests include understanding the regulation cell signalling and differentiation, the development of novel molecular and cell-based therapeutics, and translational science in general.
