a.werner (at) berkeley.edu
Achim did his Master’s and PhD studies in Goettingen and in Heidelberg in the lab of Frauke Melchior. He received his PhD in context of the International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Biology. In his PhD studies he characterized the role of the degradation of actin remodeler Eps8 in mitotic progression. He joined the Rape lab as a postdoc in January 2012 and his current work focuses on the functional and mechanistic characterization of Ubiquitin E3 ligases in stem cell pluripotency and differentiation. Achim has a postdoctoral fellowship by CIRM (California Institute of Regenerative Medicine).

Allison received her BA from Mount Holyoke College and an MA in teaching from Johns Hopkins. She is studying APC regulation of spindle assembly factors. Her interests include running, ultimate frisbee, and teaching.
Colleen McGourty (2011)
Colleen received a BA in Biological Sciences from Northwestern University. She joined the lab in 2012 and is studying in the role of ubiquitylation in COPII vesicle formation.
Hermann-Josef Meyer (2007)
hermannmeyer (at) berkeley.edu
Hermann (HJ) received his Diplom in biochemistry at the University of Hannover in Germany. He joined the Rape Lab for his PhD to investigate functions of different ubiquitin chain topologies. He likes to treat lab members with baked goodies and to go hiking.
Aileen Kelly (2009)
