Ethan is a current undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis, but is originally from Colorado. His work focuses on identifying therapies for diseases caused by telomerase dysfunction, such as dyskeratosis congenita. Ethan is working to identify gene targets that when modulated can increase in vivo levels of TERC. Ethan’s goal is to eventually obtain a PhD and he is specifically interested in telomerase/telomeres, epigenetics/chromatin structure, transposable elements, and cancer.
For fun Ethan enjoys to read, cook, watch TV, and spend time in the mountains hiking, mountain biking, and skiing.
