Annabel Ferguson

Annabel first joined the Herbert lab as a technician in 2018. She primarily worked to create and streamline a RNA sequencing pipeline in our lab. That task spread her over the many projects we have going on in the lab. She left the lab after matriculating to the Cell and Molecular Biology (CAMB) Program here at Penn. It is from there that she has decided to join the Herbert lab to do her thesis work. Her project revolves around helminth-pathogen and host interactions at a transcriptional level.
