Postdoc Andrew Kennard joins the lab!

The lab is thrilled to welcome Andrew Kennard, Ph.D as our newest postdoc! Andrew earned his Masters of philosophy in Physics at the University of Cambridge and received his Ph.D in Biophysics from Stanford University from the lab of Dr. Julie Theriot where he did beautiful work exploring the role of electrical current in stimulating cell migration during wound healing. He is especially interested in the self-organization of cytoskeletal structures and will be working on understanding the twisted architecture of Naegleria gruberi’s mitotic spindle.
