Graduate School Student
Daisy Duan is a 4th year Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry PhD student in the Koleske Lab. It was not until attending high school and taking physical sciences classes Daisy was fascinated with how biology and physics concepts could be combined to help us understand biological phenomena. Upon graduating from Johns Hopkins with degrees in Biophysics and Applied Math & Stats, she became the first in her family to not only finish high school but college. Now at Yale, Daisy is currently focused on elucidating the molecular mechanisms by which nonreceptor tyrosine kinase Abl2 impacts microtubule dynamics in vitro and in cells. Outside of the lab, Daisy loves to explore new cities, discover new music, and cook with friends in her spare time.
