Emily Overway

Graduate Student, O'Brien Laboratory, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics


I’m a second-year graduate student in Richard O’Brien’s lab. Prior to coming to Vanderbilt, I attended Purdue University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and researched epigenetics and chromatin remodeling. My current research project is investigating the feasibility of G6PC2 as a drug target for lowering fasting blood glucose levels using molecular biology and computational approaches. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and cuddling with my dog.
