Melissa Hendershott, Ph.D.
Melissa Hendershott is a Microscopy Specialist in the Microscopy and Image Analysis group. Her current work at the Allen Institute is focused on developing microscopy methods for our imaging pipeline. She obtained her Ph.D. from the University of California, San Francisco in biochemistry, studying the role of microtubule-minus end binding proteins on microtubule dynamics in Ron Vale’s lab. Through this work, she gained extensive experience in both single-molecule and live cell imaging. She completed her undergraduate studies at Boston University, where she majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
I am interested in creating systems that will be effective for high-throughput imaging applications, while also preserving the quality of the cells we are studying. I have been fascinated by how cells work since I started doing research, and am excited about the opportunity to make contributions to our understanding of the cell as an interconnected system.
