 Owen Jiang   Research Technician   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.

 Ryan Kim   Research Technician   Ryan received his bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology with Immunology emphasis at  UC Berkeley  in 2018. Previously, he had worked to find out the signaling proteins that cause apoptosis of plant cells in response to pathogens and to isolate novel components. Ryan is fascinated to join the Svensson Lab to elucidate the unknown molecular pathways of metabolic disease and the specific target for therapeutics.
