Owen received his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and a Masters in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley. At 4D Molecular Therapeutics, he had the opportunity to validate myogenesis markers in skeletal muscle cell model and practice some programming skills for data analysis. Owen is excited to join the Svensson Lab to explore new hormone pathways in metabolism and develop therapeutics.
Gemma received her Bachelor of Science from Beijing Normal University in 2013. She then completed her Ph.D. in Wendy Salzman's group at UC Riverside in the Department of Biology studying the metabolic and behavioral effects of parenthood in mice. Gemma is joining the Svensson Lab to contribute her expertise in animal physiology and to study the mechanistic aspects of new hormones in the context of metabolic disease.
Lajja Mani is helping out with laboratory needs.
Yunshin received her Bachelor of Medical Science from University of Sydney and completed her Ph.D in Dr. Satoru Takahashi’s group at Tsukuba University (Japan) in the Department of Medicine screening new transcription factors for generating insulin producing cell in mouse liver. Yunshin is very excited to join Dr. Svensson's lab to screen biomarkers of metabolic disease.
