Welcome new faculty

This fall, the Department of Biological Sciences welcomes Eric J. Strobel as the newest member of our faculty. Dr. Strobel's research interests are Nascent RNA structure and function. His research areas are: Cell and Molecular; Genetics; Genomics; and Microbiology. His research summary states, "We study the basic mechanisms through which cotranscriptional RNA folding mediates gene regulation and RNA biogenesis by developing and applying high-throughput approaches for measuring nascent RNA structure and function."  Learn more.
