Ms. Eman Husain Al-Mulla, 2009.

Tahir Rizvi's Lab

Current Graduate Students:
Suriya Jahan Aktar, currently a PhD student and her thesis work involves validating the structure-function relationship(s) of various stems and loops of the putative RNA secondary structure of MMTV packaging determinants employing a newly developed trans complementation assay for MMTV in our laboratory (Rizvi et al., Virology, 2009).  Although work directly from her thesis has not yet been published, she has contributed significantly to be a co-author on recently published manuscripts from our laboratory (Rizvi et al., J. Mol. Biol., 2010; Jaballah et al., J. Mol. Biol., 2010).  
Undergraduate Medical Students:
Following undergraduate medical and other students have been (or are currently being) trained in my laboratory at CMHS.
