The Conine Lab welcomes rotation student, Louisa Boateng!
Louisa is currently a PhD student in the Genetics and Epigenetics Graduate group interested in elucidating epigenetic contributions to pathogenesis, specifically for environmentally-related diseases like various cancers and perinatal conditions. She graduated from the Gillings school of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S.P.H in Environmental Health Sciences and B.A in Biology. Outside of school and research, she enjoys cooking/baking vegan foods, listening to music, reading, and watching sitcoms.
The Conine Lab welcomes rotation student, Johnny Doherty!
Johnny is a PhD student in the Cellular and Molecular Biology Graduate Group, under the Genetics and Epigenetics track. He obtained his Bachelors of Science in Biology with a Chemistry minor from York College of Pennsylvania in 2020. Before starting his PhD work, he spent 2 years at the Wistar Institute in Kavitha Sarma's lab researching RNA-mediated epigenetic gene regulation. When not in the lab, Johnny enjoys going out to eat, playing on a recreational softball team, and spending time with friends.
Congratulations and good luck to Olivia Crocker, research technician, as she goes on to pursue graduate school at Stanford University! She will be missed at The Conine Lab!
The Conine Lab welcomes Linda Chen, a summer student from the University of Pennsylvania!
The Conine Lab welcomes Valeria Sosa-Vega, a student part of Penn's Summer Undergraduate Internship Program (SUIP)!
Valeria is a rising senior from the University of Puerto Rice studying biology with an emphasis in Genetics. She is interested in genomics, epigenetics, and women's health and hopes to do a PhD with a focus on these areas of research. In her free time, she enjoys drawing, reading, going to the beach, and spending time with family.

Colin was named a 2021 Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences. He is one of 22 young investigators chosen from across the United States. As a Pew Scholar, the lab will receive funding for the next 4 years to facilitate on how small RNAs in sperm influence embryonic development.
Congratulations to our research technician Olivia Crocker on presenting her work in a talk at the International Worm Meeting!
Congratulations to research techinican Olivia Crocker on presenting her work at the RNA Society 2021 Meeting. She presented her research as a poster on tRNA fragments in C. elegans fertilization and development.
The Conine lab was given the honor of being the Penn Epigenetics Institute feature lab of December. Check out the video by clicking the link below!
Rachel Bartlett & Olivia Crocker join the lab as Research Technicians.
The Conine Lab opens at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The lab is located in the Center for Research on Reproduction and Women's Health on the 13th floor of the Biomedical Research Building (BRB). The lab is also affiliated with the Department of Genetics and Pediatrics at UPenn PSOM, the Division of Neonatology at CHOP, and the Penn Epigenetics Institute
