Katerina Popova, PhD
Katerina earned her PhD in Biomedical Sciences from UCSF & MIT in the laboratory of Jonathan Weissman. During her PhD, she studied mechanisms of protein folding using functional genomics methods.
She has become an expert in ribosome profiling, CRISPR engineering, genome wide genetic interaction screening, single cell technologies and has adapted these tools to answer fundamental biology about human disease. She is also developing tools to enable proteomics at the single cell level. Prior to her PhD, Katerina spent two years working in the laboratory of Benjamin Ebert at the Broad Institute developing in vivo mouse models of leukemia to identify novel therapeutic targets. Katerina holds a BS in Biology from Smith College where she graduated summa cum laude.
