CINDY BARTELS, MS
Research Operations Manager
Cindy has a BS in Biology from the University of Michigan and an MS in Plant Pathology from Michigan State University. She worked on studies of butyrylcholinesterase and acetylcholinesterase pharmacogenetics both at the University of Michigan’s Pharmacology Department and then at the University of Nebraska Medical Center before coming to Case Western Reserve to work on the genetics of bone diseases. She has been with the Scacheri Lab since its inception in 2006, developing and optimizing methods for DNA deep sequencing, cloning, and gene expression and regulation. Current work is focused on epigenomic profiling of regulatory elements in colon cancer and other common diseases. Outside of the lab, Cindy enjoys growing edible plants – the more bizarre the better – and hiking/camping, puzzles, games, and reading.
