Ben Kesler

Graduate Student in the Neuert Lab, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics

I received my B.S. in Neuroscience with a minor in Math at the University of Arizona. I am currently a PhD student in Dr. Gregor Neuert’s lab.  My interests include gene regulation, stem cells, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), data analysis, and software engineering. My thesis project involves using a combination of quantitative single-molecule RNA experiments in single cells and high-throughput data and image analysis to understand the molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation by antisense long non-coding RNAs in mammals.
