We’re excited that Allen Yen has decided to join our lab after having completed his GR1 lab rotations. Allen previously earned his Master’s at Boston University in a program that featured rotations through numerous biotech-oriented cores, where he gained firsthand experience in techniques from FACS to unconventional microscopy systems. We’re excited about the breadth of experience Allen is bringing to the lab, for the novel techniques his background will enable him to pursue, and for the scientific insights and inspiration he’ll bring to the lab at large! Welcome aboard, Allen!
