She is also extensively involved in collaborations with internal and external Hu lab collaborators. Outside of the lab, Xuehong enjoys cooking and gardening.

Andrew Asberry

 

Andrew is a second year student in the PULSe program. His research focuses on the mechanisms of therapy-induced neuroendocrine differentiation in cancer cells. With a background is in analytical chemistry, he spent over six years in Industry at Dow Chemical. Currently, Andrew is utilizing multidisciplinary approaches including proteomics, genomics, computational, and structural biology to address how cancers evade treatment. Outside of lab, he enjoys running/biking with friends, cooking, and playing guitar. After graduating, Andrew will seek a postdoc position in drug development.

Jogendra Pawar, Ph.D.

Dr. Pawar is a postdoctoral research associate in Dr. Hu’s lab. He is working on understanding the role of PRMT5 as an important epigenetic regulator of prostate cancer cell growth. He has completed his Ph.D. from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India in molecular cancer biology. Before joining Dr. Hu’s lab, he was a Post-Doctoral fellow at the Department of chemistry and biochemistry, Northern Arizona University. Outside of the lab, he likes watching movies, traveling, hiking, and cooking. 

Christopher T. Nguyen

Undergraduate Researcher, Purdue BSPS Program

Chris is an undergraduate in his second year at Purdue’s BSPS Program. He is currently performing research in the Hu lab and learning laboratory skills in determining the affects of PRMT5 on driving prostate cancer growth. He plans to continue to medical school in the future. Outside of the lab, he likes flying drones recreationally and mountain biking.
