Research Associate, OHRC Mouse Core
Michael earned a B.S. in Biology from Oregon State University in 1998, and an M.S. from Eastern Washington University in 2008, where he isolated zinc resistance genes from Serratia proteamaculans by mRNA subtractive hybridization. He joined the Barr-Gillespie lab in 2005 and since then has been running the Mouse Core component of the P30 awarded to Barr-Gillespie. Michael carries out all of the in utero surgeries for the Barr-Gillespie lab, targeting the inner ear of embryonic mice. He also is a skilled molecular biologist who is now responsible for generation and analysis of mouse lines using the CRISPR/Cas9 technology.
In 2005, Paroma acquired her Masters in Science degree in Physiology from the University of Calcutta, where she was first in class. She earned her Ph.D. in Molecular & Cellular Biology from Oregon State University in 2016, carrying out research with Colin Johnson on the role of otoferlin in zebrafish hair cells. Paroma joined the Barr-Gillespie laboratory in 2017 and is presently investigating the role of a novel hair bundle protein in development of the bundle.

Julia earned a B.S. in Biochemistry with Honors from UCLA in 2014, where she carried out research as an undergraduate student and as a research assistant in Ina Wanner’s laboratory. She matriculated in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at OHSU in 2017 and joined the Barr-Gillespie laboratory in 2018. Her thesis project will be to investigate the role of an interesting hair bundle protein in bundle development.
Jocelyn obtained a B.S. in Neuroscience from Brown University in 2002, carrying out substantial research as an undergraduate and research assistant in the laboratory of J. Michael Walker, where she first acquired mass spectrometry skills. She earned a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Neuroscience in 2010, where she studied signaling functions of voltage-gated calcium channels in neuronal development and disease with Ricardo Dolmetsch. She joined the Barr-Gillespie laboratory in 2010, first as a postdoc supported by an NRSA, then as a senior research associate supported by her R03 grant, and now as a staff scientist. Jocelyn has continued her training in mass spectrometry, including attending the week-long course in targeted proteomics put on by the MacCoss lab at the University of Washington. She has multiple projects in the Barr-Gillespie lab, each investigating the role of a specific interesting molecule in mechanotransduction and hair-bundle development. She is also developing targeted proteomics methods that will allow her to assay the incredibly rare proteins making up the hair cell’s mechanotransduction apparatus.

Assistant Staff Scientist
Clive earned a B.Sc. in Biochemistry with Honours from the University of York, England, in 1994. He then carried out Ph.D. work with Shamshad Cockcroft at University College London, earning a Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 1997. From 1997 through 2005, he worked in the Cockroft lab as a Wellcome Trust senior research fellow, investigating the role of lipid binding proteins in cell signaling. He joined the Barr-Gillespie laboratory in 2006, and has been focused on developing a biochemical purification of the mechanotransduction apparatus.
