About Me

Eitan is a senior chemistry major in TD (the best residential college). In the Davis Lab he studies RNA/protein phase transitions—a hallmark of neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS and Huntington’s Disease—in vitro using Fast Relaxation Imaging (FReI) and Time Resolved IR Spectroscopy. His previous research experience includes developing endogenous models of SOD1-fALS in c. elegans and probing STMN2 pathology in human cell lines expressing mutant TDP-43. Outside of the lab, Eitan enjoys musical theater and is active as a lighting designer and stage manager.
