    Jijumon A. S.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioI am Jijumon, a biologist, mostly trained in molecular biology, cell biology, and protein biochemistry. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in Manu Prakash's lab at Stanford University. I did my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Biological Sciences at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research-Kolkata (IISER-K). After that, I moved to Europe and worked in the BRC, Hungarian Academy of Sciences as an ITC fellow. There I did a one-year training course on contemporary experimental biology and state-of-the-art techniques, together with a project in sarcomeric actin regulation. In 2016, I moved to Paris and started my Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (Marie Curie fellow) in Carsten Janke's lab at Institut Curie, University of Paris-Saclay. My broader research interests are cytoskeleton, tool development, and proteomics. I use both biochemical and bioengineering tools to tackle my project. Beyond my academic pursuits, I enjoy activities such as reading, photography, shuttle badminton, and cycling.

    Anthony Cesnik

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioI am advancing the vision of enabling an understanding of biology at the proteoform level, peering into the cellular machinery in a way that reveals precisely which molecule is acting in the biological system. Recently, I have been working in Emma Lundberg’s lab on understanding how the expression of these molecules varies between individual cells in space and time. Emma Lundberg’s group has a wealth of experience in using microscopy to yield biological images that paint a picture of this cell-to-cell heterogeneity of protein expression information, and joining her lab has deepened my expertise in integrating datasets to perform innovative analyses of single-cell protein expression. I hope to extend this towards analyzing single-cell proteoform expression, understanding the heterogeneity and flux between these proteoforms in space and time, and digging into the fundamental insights about human biology these data may reveal.
