Winston Lie is an aspiring physician scientist, originally from Jakarta, Indonesia and a member of Princeton’s Class of 2020. At the university when he is not in class or in the lab, Winston works as a chemistry and molecular biology tutor with the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, as well as a head fellow for the Scholars Institute Fellows Program mentoring freshmen and sophomore students. During the summer, he also serves as a course instructor for the MOL152: Laboratory Research in the Life Sciences class for Princeton’s FSI program. Winston’s research interests are primarily in biochemistry and structural biology. During his time at the University Oxford, Winston worked to determine the structure of the DNA damage sensor protein, UHRF1, using electron microscopy. Currently as a member of the Hughson lab, Winston’s research focuses on understanding on how the SM protein Sly1 interacts with its cognate SNARES to catalyze SNARE complex assembly. During his free time, Winston enjoys watching basketball and playing tennis, as well as hiking and rafting back at his home in Boise, Idaho.
