I am currently a undergraduate biology student in Yeshiva
University, New York. As I am only one year from receiving my
BA, I am currently looking for a lab to do my PhD at . My
primary interest is in protein structure and structure-function
relationship. I am specificly interested in X-ray
crystallography and 2D NMR, but would like to combine them with
other biochemical experimental techniques. I am willing to
relocate anywhere in the USA. My CV is enclosed.
