Aaron Koppel

Lab Manager

I oversee the day-to-day operations in Professor Efimov's research laboratory. I maintain our IRB and animal protocols, coordinate grant submissions, manage our human heart sample inventory and database, and ensure environmental and safety compliance. Furthermore, I conduct molecular biology experiments and statistical analyses. I like doing this in my spare time.

    Education

    • B.A. - Anthropology - Washington University in St. Louis (2007)
