Laura Chipman



B.S. - Biochemistry, University of Washington, Seattle, WA


I joined the lab in spring of 2016. I am interested in the role of argonaute, an essential component of the RNA induced silencing complex, in the miRNA pathway, aging, and gene regulation. Outside of lab I am interested in surfing, eating, hiking, and crafting (mainly goofy costumes)!
