We occupy a 10,000 square feet of newly-renovated space in the Stein Clinical Research Center, adjacent to the Beckman Center for Chemical Sciences.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, our research space consists of 6 laboratories, cold rooms, instrument rooms for LC, spectroscopy, imaging, and mass spectrometry bacterial and mammalian cell culture, etc. The size of our group is currently ~25 graduate student and postdoctoral researchers as well as five permanent staff.

Below are lists of current graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, KL2 scholars, visiting scholars, undergraduate and summer interns, and administrative and technical staff. Please feel free to e-mail anyone if you have questions regarding our lab or research.
