Jasmine Castellanos, Microbiology Graduate Student (PhD), UC Riverside

Seminar Title: "Protein Mistargeting Triggers a Cytosolic Quality Control Mechanism that sorts Protein based on Thermodynamic Stability"

Biography: I received my B.S. in Biology from CSUF in 2022. I was in the MARC program in collaboration with Edwards Lifesciences before beginning my Ph.D. in 2022. My research focuses on protein quality control mechanisms in the cell. 


Leila Shadmani, Microbiology Graduate Student (PhD), UC Riverside

Seminar Title: "Investigation of microbial diversity and function in herptile GI system from metagenome-assembled genomes"

Biography: I joined the Microbiology program as a PhD student in Fall 2022 after completing a MS in Plant Pathology with a focus on Mycology at Razi University, Kermanshah, Iran. I am currently working on metagenomics for the NSF-funded Understanding Rules of Life for Herptile Microbiomes and investigating deep subsurface Fungi as part of a collaborative project supported by CIFAR programs in Fungi and Earth4D.
