Karissa Shuck

Rotation PhD Student

Hi, I’m Karissa, a first year in the Integrated CMBS PhD program! I graduated from UCLA with a major in biochemistry and minor in business/accounting. My research investigated epigenetic inheritance using C. elegans, and I also interned year long at a biotech startup that leveraged nanotechnology for single cell sorting. I’m interested in learning more about RNA stability and the epitranscriptome in my rotation and am excited to be here! Outside of lab you can find me cafe hopping around the city, traveling, and hanging out with friends!
