This summer, the Hyman lab expands their team with new students on the bachelors, masters, and PhD levels.

Athina Karasavvidi comes from Greece. She is an undergraduate student at the Department of Materials Science & Technology, University of Crete, Greece. Athina is currently  working on her bachelor thesis as an Erasmus student in the Hyman Lab, investigating the effect of mutations on TDP-43 protein assembly and aggregation.


Arsenii Hordeichyk comes from Ukraine. He earned a Bachelors degreee in molecular biology from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. He is currently pursuing a Masters degree at the Max Planck School “Matter to Life” (Molecular systems chemistry and engineering at Heidelberg University). In the Hyman lab, Arsenii studies how crowded environments affect enzymatic reactions and metabolic regulation, with a glycolysis as the research focus. 


Akshaye Pal comes from the United States. He received his Bachelors degree in Biology from Santa Clara University and worked as a  research technician in the Voorhees lab at CalTech, US. He is pursuing his PhD in the Hyman and Zechner Labs, and plans to use stochastic models to determine how condensates affect noisy gene expression in cells.
