Emily Greta Berghoff
Graduate Student

I grew up in Chicago and did my undergraduate studies at Colby College in Waterville, ME, but I remain a Midwesterner at heart.  During college, I majored in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry and cell & molecular biology. 

After graduating from college, I worked as a research assistant both at Northwestern University and at Exosome Diagnostics, a biotech.  During my time at Northwestern, I studied a novel non-coding RNA involved in the development and migration of neurons.  At Exosome, I worked on creating non-invasive diagnostic assays for cancer.  Both of these research experiences have shaped my current research interests in molecular biology, but I am eager to try out new areas and new model organisms as a part of Columbia's diverse research community. 

When I'm not in the lab, I am most likely either enjoying a cheap meal at a restaurant or taking a long run.  I am excited to explore New York and make new friends at Columbia!
