Graduate Student, MD/PhD Program
Ellen graduated with a BA in Biological Sciences from Cornell University in 2017. As an undergraduate, she studied the RAD9-RAD1-HUS1 (9-1-1) DNA checkpoint clamp in Dr. Robert Weiss’s laboratory at Cornell. She also investigated the molecular mechanisms leading to pulmonary metastasis in osteosarcoma in Dr. Chand Khanna’s laboratory at the NIH. After graduation, Ellen entered the CWRU MSTP in 2017 and began working full-time in the Scacheri lab in 2019. Currently, Ellen is investigating the heterogeneity of the epigenetic landscape in osteosarcoma. Outside of the lab, she enjoys watching TV, listening to Korean pop music, and running.
