The Peccoud Lab was pleased to welcome a new research scientist to our group this October. Emily Henriksen received her PhD in Microbiology from the University of Georgia in 2008. During her career she has worked as a research scientist at the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and North Carolina State University, where she investigated consolidated bioprocessing, microbial community interactions and novel CRISPR-Cas systems, respectively.

Emily is currently using CRISPR-Cas9 genome engineering to model yeast cell cycle regulation and nutrient signaling in the lab and will also be involved in the development of new proposals, stay tuned!
