Current Members

Silas Wood, B.S. PhD Student (Structural Bio. and Biochem.)

Silas is a 2nd-year PhD student in Structural Biology and Biochemistry. Originally from Kansas City, MO, he received his BS in Biology from Truman State University in May 2017. His work focuses on characterizing changes in protein glycosylation during the progression of heart disease and determining how these changes may affect cardiac proteostasis and protein-protein interactions. While not in the lab, he enjoys watching horror movies, hiking in the mountains, and illustration.

Erin Han, Ph.D. Postdoctoral Fellow

Erin received her Ph.D. in biochemistry from CU Boulder in August 2018, where she developed fluorescence imaging tools in Dr. Amy Palmer's lab to visualize protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions. For her postdoctoral research, Erin is focusing on characterizing the regulation of alternative splicing and expression of protein isoforms in aging-relate cardiac hypertrophy. Outside the lab, Erin enjoys spending time with her family in beautiful Colorado.
