We value scientific creativity, rigor, communication, and lab citizenry. We welcome scientists whose training and interests come from diverse fields (including, but definitely not limited to microbiologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, geneticists, structural biologists, biophysicists). 

We want to build an inclusive research and training environment that celebrates intersectional identities. We aim to create a lab culture that is supportive and facilitates belonging within the lab and in academia. 

We acknowledge the privileges that allow us to be academic scientists and know that there is still more work to be done to make science and scientific training accessible for all. 


We are not currently recruiting undergrads - please check back in Fall.
If you are interested in performing research in our lab, please email Allison. Please include a 1 page resume and 1-3 paragraphs about your background and your research interests in our lab. We ask that undergraduate researchers spend 10 hours/week in lab and ask for a 2-year commitment.


Students interested in doing a PhD in our lab should apply to the Yale Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program.
