Assistant Professor Carrie Partch

After studying Biochemistry and Italian at the University of Washington, Carrie worked with Daniel Carr at the Portland VA Research Foundation to study the function of A-Kinase Anchoring Proteins (AKAPs) in sperm motility. She joined the lab of Aziz Sancar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for Ph.D. studies on the signaling mechanisms of bacterial, plant, and animal cryptochromes. After postdoctoral training with Kevin Gardner and Joseph Takahashi at UT Southwestern Medical Center focusing on the structure and function of bHLH-PAS transcription factors, Dr. Partch started her independent lab at University of California Santa Cruz in 2011, where she focuses on molecular mechanisms of circadian timekeeping.
