(John) Weston Quinn
Graduate Student (Candidate)

I am a Biology Ph.D. Student focusing on Genetics. My research is targeted towards understanding the mechanisms behind regeneration of Drosophila and why they lose the ability to regenerate as they age. We are specifically studying how epigenetics plays a role in gene silencing and the function of novel damage activated enhancers and their role in regeneration. When I am not in the lab I love to go hiking with my dog and on the weekends play pool with friends.
