Yu "Alex" Fu

O'Toole lab

I usually go by Alex. Here's my short bio: I received a BA from Reed College in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB). At Reed, I received the Marshall W. Cronyn Fellowship to optimize the expression of the membrane complex MntAB at Ahuja Lab. For my undergraduate thesis, I worked with Prof. Ahuja and Prof. Glasfeld and used Cryo-EM in combination with various biochemical methods to study the mechanism of transcription activation of MntR, a metalloregulator in B. subtilis. In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling. I have set foot on all 7 continents. I'm also a large-format photographer who enjoys darkroom printing.
