A very bittersweet farewell to our two departing undergrads, Giselle Uribe ‘20 and Haeun Jung ‘20! These two superstars have been a part of our lab family for almost their entire undergrad careers, and although we’re sad to see them go, we’re so proud of all their accomplishments.
Both Giselle and Haeun were mentored by Elliot Dine, who had this to say about their time in the lab:
Here’s a little more about each of them:
Concentration: Molecular Biology concentration and a certificate in Engineering Biology.
Senior thesis: Development of optogenetic tools to investigate the mechanism of cytoplasmic.
Plans after Princeton: My plans after Princeton include starting my manuscript and working as a lab tech. After, I hope to be in an MD/PhD program.
Memories from lab: Things that I will miss from lab include running into my labmates everyday (at literally any hour of the day) and just the general Toettcher Lab vibes.
Concentration: Molecular Biology, with a certificate in Violin Performance
Senior thesis: Enhancing Signaling Flux via Light-Induced Assembly of the Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) Pathway
Plans after Princeton: Going to Shepherd School of Music at Rice University to get my Master’s of Music in Violin Performance.
Memories from lab: I’ll miss the random conversations with people and the quirky environment that let me learn so much about myself.
Bye, ladies! It’s such a shame we can’t celebrate your graduation and research successes in person. We wish you all the best with your next adventures and can’t wait to see what you do next!
