Congratulations to Min Kyung Shinn for being selected for the 2017 Elson Fellowship in honor of Dr. Elliot Elson

Ms. Min Kyung Shinn received her B.A. in physics and chemistry from Bard College in 2014. After graduation, Ms. Shinn joined the PhD program at Washington University in Saint Louis in the department of physics and joined the laboratory of Dr. Tim Lohman. In 2016, Ms. Shinn received her M.A. physics.

Ms. Shinn is currently working on two projects in the laboratory of Dr. Tim Lohman. The first project involves the role of the intrinsically disordered C-Terminal tails of the SSB protein in cooperativity and interactions with other proteins. Her second project involves a study of the dynamics of the nuclease domain of the recombination helicase/nuclease, RecBCD.
