Postdoc Profile

Benjamin Sabari was a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Richard (Rick) Young’s lab investigating how the molecules involved in gene regulation organize into large collective assemblies called condensates. As of January 2020, Sabari is running his own lab at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. We sat down with Sabari to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Nora Kory is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member David Sabatini’s lab working on mitochondrial metabolism and transport, where she is also an HHMI fellow of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. We sat down with Kory to learn more about her and her experiences in and out of the lab.

Mike Torrens-Spence is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Jing-Ke Weng’s lab investigating how plants make molecules of medicinal and agricultural interest and how to recreate those molecules using synthetic biology. We sat down with Torrens-Spence to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Kacper Rogala is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member David Sabatini’s lab investigating the structure and interactions of proteins involved in an important metabolic pathway. We sat down with Rogala to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Izabella Pena is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member David Sabatini’s lab investigating how toxic proteins associated with neurodegeneration are degraded in cells. We sat down with Pena to learn more about her and her experiences in and out of the lab.

Rebecca "Becky" Povilus is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Mary Gehring’s lab investigating the evolution of reproduction in plants. We sat down with Povilus to learn more about her and her experiences in and out of the lab.

Jayaraman (Jay) Thangappan is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Fellow Silvia (Silvi) Rouskin’s lab investigating RNA structure. We sat down with Thangappan to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Ally Nguyen is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Iain Cheeseman’s lab investigating genes involved in chromosome segregation during mitosis. We sat down with Nguyen to learn more about her and her experiences in and out of the lab.
