Laura Riolobos , PhD

Email: lriolobo@uw.edu

Phone: 206-221-6454

Dr. Riolobos received her PhD in Molecular Biology from Universidad Autonoma of Madrid in 2006. During her PhD she studied the nuclear transport of Parvovirus structural proteins and the capsid assembly intermediates. After graduation, she worked as a Research scientist at Protein Alternatives in Madrid where she optimized the Phage Display technology to obtain specific antibodies against colorectal cancer biomarkers. In 2010, she joined the University of Washington as a Senior Fellow in the Hematolgoy Department, her project aimed to obtain “Universal” Stem Cells that would not be recognized as allogeneic by knocking-down the B2M and HLA-I genes. Currently, Dr. Riolobos is working with the CVI on the development and characterization of vaccines for lung cancers.

Walter Ruzzo , PhD

Email: ruzzo@cs.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-6298

Dr. Ruzzo's research is focused on development of computational methods and tools applicable to practical problems in molecular biology, an increasingly data-rich discipline. Recent work has focused on analysis of high throughput sequencing data, such as chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIPseq) and transcriptomic (RNAseq) data, including development of new methods for mapping, assembly, bias correction, isoform quantitation, and motif discovery. New methods for finding noncoding RNA (ncRNA) genes are also being actively developed.

Lucas Sullivan , PhD

Email: lucas@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-7826

Dr. Lucas Sullivan studies cell metabolism under normal and cancerous conditions. He also aims to deepen the understanding of metabolism in general, working to discover new molecular products of metabolism and their roles in sustaining cell survival and growth. The current goals of the lab seek to span from translationally relevant projects, testing metabolism modifying therapies in preclinical cancer models, to basic science discovery, investigating new roles for coenzyme networks and identifying new metabolites, to better understand cell metabolism in cancer and beyond.
