Gabe joined the lab in 2016. He received his bachelor’s degree in molecular biology from Winona State University in 2014 and his M.D., Ph.D. from the University of Iowa in 2021. He is currently atttending an ophthalmology residency at Stanford University. Gabe is studying the structure of the calpain-5 (CAPN5) protein and its role in the development of Autosomal Dominant Neovascular Inflammatory Vitreoretinopathy (ADNIV), a rare blinding eye disease. His research interests include translational proteomics, structural biology, biophysical chemistry, enzymology, drug design, molecular modeling, and bioinformatics. He was awarded a NIH F30 grant in 2017.
