Zhuo Jie Liu

B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Stony Brook University

I am a graduate student in the BME Department at Stony Brook University. You would usually find me reading on my phone but I recently picked up snowboarding. I'm looking forward to working and contributing to Dr. Wang's Lab. Feel free to come up and talk to me (as long as I had my morning coffee). 


Shiffoni Sukhlal

B.S. in Biotechnology, NYIT  

M.S. in Biotechnology, Brown University

MBA in Finance, Johnson and Wales University

My interest lies in Precision Medicine: single-cell analysis, and proteomics – cytokines, drawing experiences from nanobiotechnology, drug and gene delivery, and genetic engineering while ensuring the ethical and responsible translation of novel technologies to industry.  My hobbies are astrophotography, camping, and gardening in the summers.
