Kirti Gupta starts as a postdoc in the Shah Lab this Fall. She comes to us after defending a very productive Ph.D. in Molecular and Structural Biology at CDRI, India in Dr. Saman Habib, where identified and characterized ribosomal assembly factors involved in the organellar ribosome biogenesis in Plasmodium falciparum. In the Shah Lab Kirti will be developing some cool new methods to study dynamics of translation initiation and co-transcriptional translation. We are really excited to have you. Welcome aboard!
