Jesse Ziebarth Postdoc
Jesse obtained the Ph.D in our group in 2009. While he was a graduate student, he worked on simulation for polymer separation and charaterization and also initiated project for polymer based gene delivery. Jesse then spent several years working in the bioinformatics group at UT health science center. He came back to work on the gene delivery project and also spent part of his time working here in the Bioinformatics program
