Rebekah is a fifth-year PhD candidate at Princeton Neuroscience Institute, where she works with Catherine Peña investigating the effects that early life stress has on genetic control mechanisms during brain development. Before Princeton, Rebekah studied Biology and Creative Writing at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where she investigated the dynamics of ribosome biogenesis. Other than science, Rebekah enjoys museums, writing stories and screenplay's, and taking long walks.

Siena is a fourth-year PhD student in the Quantitative and Computational Biology program. Prior to coming to Princeton, she spent 4 years at Microsoft Research working on DNA Storage. She graduated from the University of Washington with a triple degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Dance. At Princeton, Siena has worked on differential methylation, improving GWAS results to identify disease-gene associations using tissue-specific networks, and regulatory predictions for social behavior in bees. In her free time, she enjoys taking dance classes and performing, visiting NY/Philly, and taking her dog on long walks in the Institute woods with her fiancé.

Kimberly (Kimmie) is a fourth-year Quantitative and Computational Biology (QCB) PhD student in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. She is co-advised by AJ te Velthuis and Ned Wingreen. Her research focuses on investigating the architecture and dynamics of RNA virus genomes and how ribonucleoprotein (RNP) structures modulate efficient replication in host cells. In her free time she enjoys running, gardening, reading, and laughing.

Abby is a third-year PhD student in the Department of Molecular Biology with a passion for understanding how all the molecular machines inside of the cell work together to make life possible. As a member of the Hughson lab, she studies the proteins that drive membrane fusion, one of the key processes needed to shuttle cargo from place to place within the cell. Outside of the lab, she enjoys dabbling in music composition and making elaborate spreadsheets about her creative projects.

Addie is a fourth-year PhD student in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Prior to Princeton, she studied Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology at Emory University and conducted research in behavioral neuropharmacology. She then worked for two years at UCSF, examining how cortico-striatal projections regulate emotional and motivated behaviors that are disrupted in psychiatric disease. Outside the lab, Addie is a huge foodie, enjoys all things outdoors, and is constantly asking strangers if she can pet their dogs.
