Zemer Gitai, Ph.D.
Molecular Biology

Dr. Gitai received his B.Sc. in Biology from MIT and his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from UCSF. As a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford, he studied the dynamics, function, and regulation of the newly-discovered bacterial actin, MreB. In his own lab at Princeton he has focused on bacterial cell biology, including developing new methods for imaging…

Coleen Murphy, Ph.D.
Molecular Biology/LSI

Dr. Murphy received her B.S. in Biophysical and Biochemical Sciences from the University of Houston and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Stanford University. As an LSRF and Ellison postdoctoral fellow at UCSF, she studied the transcriptional regulation of C. elegans longevity. In her own lab at Princeton she has focused on early aging phenotypes,…
