Prof. Nils Walter, Ph.D.

Principal Investigator

Hi, I'm Nils Walter, the P.I. - which in this case stands for principal investigator. That means that I am coaching our very own bowling team, the RNAces and also the science that all these diligent people above are doing. We have a young, dynamic, and interactive group, which makes it fun to work together. Our lab layout is probably the best in the department, our equipment and the science are first rate (I'm originally from Germany, so the only thing I can complain about is the beer here in the US). I invite you to browse the accompanying information on research and publications and to stop by the lab (room 2020) or my office (room 2405) or email me if you have any further questions.
