Ph.D. Candidate and Laboratory Technician
Joseph Aubee is a a PhD Candidate in the Microbiology program at Howard University College of Medicine under the aegis of The Graduate School of Arts and Science. He has been a member of the Thompson Lab since 2013, when he was hired as a Laboratory Technician.In his position as a Research Technician, I assist with the day-to-day operation of the lab to facilitate a streamlined daily operation in areas including personnel training, equipment maintenance, laboratory supplies, and lab safety. Additionally, his work in the Thompson Lab spans several research projects, including the post-transcriptional regulation of MiaA. Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in bacteria is not completely understood, hindering our ability to combat bacterial infections and understand the inner workings of the bacterial cell. Therefore, a central focus of his research is to elucidate the regulation and function of the tRNA isopentyladenine transferase enzymes in E.coli via small RNA action. Some of his research interests include bacterial genetics, epitranscriptomics, cell and molecular biology, microscopy, functional genomics, and cancer biology. Outside of the lab, he enjoys cooking, traveling, volunteering, photography, jogging, singing, and spending time outdoors.
