    BioMy current endeavours focus on the identification of human mast cell degranulation regulators using a whole-genome CRISPR knockout library screen, and the validation of these findings using our recently developed technology platform. It is my long-standing goal to contribute to the design and development of specific and effective therapeutic interventions for mast cell-mediated diseases.

  • Connie Fung

    Connie Fung

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Pathology

    BioConnie received her B.S. in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics from UCLA, where she conducted research on how the eukaryotic parasite Toxoplasma gondii invades and replicates inside host cells in the lab of Dr. Peter Bradley. Subsequently, she obtained her Ph.D. in Microbiology & Immunology from Stanford University with Dr. Manuel Amieva. Her thesis research involved the use of high-resolution microscopy to study how the bacterium Helicobacter pylori establishes and maintains persistent colonization of the gastric epithelium. Connie joined Dr. Michael Howitt's lab as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2019 and is currently investigating how tuft cells, specialized taste-chemosensory cells, modulate mucosal immunity in response to intestinal parasites.

  • Elias Roth Gerrick

    Elias Roth Gerrick

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Pathology

    BioEli received his B.S. in Microbiology and Immunology from U.C. Irvine in 2013, where he worked in the lab of Dr. Celia Goulding. He earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2018 in the lab of Dr. Sarah Fortune, where he studied post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Eli joined the Howitt lab at Stanford in the summer of 2018, where he is studying the influence of protozoan members of the microbiome on intestinal immunity.

  • Laurin Heinrich

    Laurin Heinrich

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Pathology

    BioLaurin Heinrich, Ph.D. is a dedicated Postdoctoral Research Fellow specialized in neuroscience and neurophysiology. Driven by her passion to improve therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders, she seeks to uncover and understand the mechanisms underlying severe diseases such as Parkinson's. She thereby incorporates an interdisciplinary approach combining human iPSC modeling and CRISPR screening with molecular biological and novel electrophysiological techniques.
    During a 6 months postdoctoral fellowship at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Laurin contributed to the development of a functional cortico-striato-nigral neuronal microcircuit using human-derived iPSC (2020). She completed her doctoral thesis in the lab of Prof. Dr. Carsten Duch at the Institute of Developmental Biology and Neurobiology (IDN) at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (2016-2019), where she investigated the neuronal function of α2δ calcium channel subunits. She received her Master of Science with a major in Neurobiology from Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (2013-2015) and a Bachelor’s degree from the Technical University Kaiserslautern (2010-2013).
