Laboratory Technician | Snow Lab
Lena Kogan graduated from Barnard College in 2019 with a degree in Physiology and Organismal Biology and is so excited to be joining the Snow Lab as a Lab Technician. Previously, she researched fruit flies at Columbia and was the Post-Bacc STEM Fellow in the Writing and Speaking Center at Barnard. She looks forward to transferring her microdissection skills across insects and continuing to pursue her interest in scientific communication. She will be donning her bee suit to study the impact of proteasome inhibitors on Nosema ceranae infection in honey bees. In addition, she will be developing other infection models in this critical pollinator.
