Moe is currently completing his postdoctoral studies in the Stearns Lab at Stanford University. Where will he land next?
After moving from Switzerland to Canada in 2009, youth health I joined the Quarmby lab during my 2nd year at SFU in early 2012 as an undergraduate volunteer. Part-time during the fall and winter semesters on top of directed studies courses, look I was working in the lab full-time during the ensuing summers supported by two Undergraduate Student Research Awards and tasked with developing and performing a deflagellation mutant screen from scratch – Early project design, population health testing the developed assays and validating them, performing the mutant enrichment and detection. This I followed up with further phenotypic characterization. PCR-based recombination mapping and ultimately variant detection using Next-Gen Sequencing. After finishing my Undergradate Degree I was happy to stay on in the Quarmby Lab to incorporate my work into a Master’s Thesis. I successfully defended my thesis in 2015, work which contributed to the Hilton, Meili et. al. 2016 publication discussing the identification of ADF1 and several other, novel deflagellation genes.
