Bob and Tobi's iBiology lectures on the basic mechanism of lipid droplet biologyRead More
Basic science is at the heart of many of our greatest health advances. And in this week's episode we speak with two scientists who are asking fundamental questions about how our bodies work. The answers could help crack the secrets of diseases ranging from diabetes to dementia.Read More
Member, Cell Biology Program, SKI Alfred P. Sloan Chair, MSKCC Professor, Weill Cornell
Program Chair, Cell Biology Program, SKI Enid A. Haupt Chair, MSKCC Professor, Weill Cornell Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)
Visiting Investigator (HHMI)
I am building a software platform for analyzing and storing lipidomics data.
My background is in analytical chemistry and I apply my expertise to better understand the links between lipid metabolism and common diseases, such as neurodegeneration or cancer.
I am from Spain and love outdoors activities and sports. I came to the Farese and Walther lab driven by curiosity to mechanistically understand lipid droplets. Now, I work on understanding how proteins organize lipid droplet formation, and how proteins target lipid droplets.
Senior Research Specialist (HHMI)
I have some 20 years of experience in life science industry. Currently, I am working on novel approaches to modulate metabolism and to target cancer.
I am a cancer biologist and study pathways of lipid metabolism in tumorgenesis
I am studying lysosomal biology and lipid turnover
I am a biochemist, structural and cell biologist interested in mechanisms of lipid metabolism.
Research Technician (HHMI)
I have an undergraduate degree in Biology and Society and am interested in cancer therapeutics. When not running cell based assays, I enjoy experimenting with new coffee flavors.
Postdoctoral Fellow (joint with W. Harper lab at Harvard)
I work on the mechanisms that target proteins to lipid droplets
Assistant to Dr. Walther (Chair) and Dr. Farese
Scientific Administrative Coordinator
After working as a research technician at CSHL and a genetic counselor assistant at GeneDx, I have found myself jumping back into research as I prepare for graduate school. I joined the Farese and Walther Lab to learn more about lipid metabolism at the cellular/sub-cellular level. I primarily assist the lab by handling important scientific regulatory and administrative affairs to prevent any obstacles impeding our scientific output.
I am a HFSP postdoc fellow in the lab. I graduated from IISER-Pune in 2021 and joined our lab to study lysosomal lipid metabolism in context to neuro-immune diseases. I am broadly interested in understanding various aspects of lipid physiology in the development and maintenance of central nervous system.
I studied neuroscience during my graduate career but now I am the peacemaker, also known as the Lab Manager of the Farese and Walther Lab. When I'm not placing orders or re-organizing the lab, I love to listen to Beyoncé, Twice, and Bad Bunny.
Research Specialist (HHMI)
I am an interdisciplinary expert in biology and optics in the F&W lab. I use Lattice light-sheet microscope to study lipid droplet biogenesis.
I am interested in the pathways of triglyceride synthesis. Now I am working on the feedback regulation of lipogenesis
I have an undergraduate degree in Biophysics. I’m deeply involved in both the operational side of our mass spectrometer and in the analytical side of lipidomics. In my spare time I like playing chess and climbing rocks.
I am working on the biochemistry of lipid synthesis
