Phil Frankino

Ph.D. Candidate

Research

I obtained my B.S. in Biochemistry from the State University of New York at Fredonia in the spring of 2016. My undergraduate research was focused on understanding the translational regulation of an important morphogen, Gurken, in Drosophila oogenesis. In the Dillin lab, I am interested in investigating the role of the cytoplasmic stress response in the context of aging and longevity in the model organism C. elegans, working with Ryo Higuchi-Sanabria.
