Hello! I’m Gintare (Gin for short, and yes, I like gin…) and I’m a second year PhD student here at Randall. I work at Jim McDonnell’s lab and we’re curious how the molecules involved in the allergic response all work together. So I get to study both human proteins (a special class of antibodies, called IgEs) and allergens from pollen and use a bunch of biophysical techniques to see how they interact and how it leads to allergic response.
Good morning, London! Mornings are slow, but it’s always exciting to see where my experiments will take me today, so better get going!
