Eichhorn research group
Catherine (Katie) D. Eichhorn
Current Graduate Students
Momodou's interest lies in understanding how gene expression is regulated. His goal is to become a chemistry professor and use the knowledge gained in the Eichhorn Lab to solve major chemical biology problems.
Ernest is interested in the study of the structure and binding interactions of RNA-protein complexes to understand how these structures and binding interactions affect function of RNA-protein complexes.
Emmanuel's interest lies in using synthetic molecules to probe biological molecules (RNA) with a specific focus on how fluorogenic molecules interact with RNA aptamer. His goal is to become a researcher in chemical biology.
Sachithra Nadeeshani Bandula Kumaranayakage
Sachithra Nadeeshani is interested in the interaction between 7SK RNA and associated proteins within mammalian cells. She is also interested in biochemistry, Molecular, and Cell biology. Her goal after graduation is to be a professional biochemist.
Uyen is interested in investigating the structures and functions of ribozymes. Her goal is to become a retail pharmacist and utilize her chemical knowledge to help her patients take their medications properly.
Trish Nguyen is interested in how RNA can be used as a treatment for several diseases. Their goal is to get a Bachelor's in Chemistry.
