Catherine Reinke - Assistant Professor
Education: B.A., Biology and English, Carleton College; Ph.D., Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology, University of Chicago
Academic Interests: I am interested in how cells use their genomes. Specifically, my lab is interested in furthering our understanding of the cellular mechanisms and developmental roles of microRNAs, one class of small, non-coding ribonucleic acid (RNA) essential to plants and animals. I am also interested in facilitating public understanding and appreciation of science and scientific research.
