Kristen Farley

Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Topic & Project

Gene regulation, transcription termination

Education

B.S. Molecular & Cellular Biology, University of Georgia, 2015 

M.S. Microbiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2017

PhD Microbiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2021


Kristen is broadly interested in microbial physiology and loves figuring out how microbial cells function at the molecular level. She is currently examining how small RNAs regulate gene expression during transcription by modulating Rho-dependent transcription termination in bacteria

In addition to her expertise in microbial physiology, Kristen loves to exercise, bake, and watercolor paint outside of lab. She has two kitties - Luna and Cheeto.
