John Anderson is a Research Associate in the laboratory of Dr. Jeffrey Wilusz. He has studied RNA, viral RNA, and mRNA decay in Dr. Wilusz's lab over the last 15 years. John has worked on studying how viruses interact with the human cellular machinery and elucidated how many viruses overcome the RNA decay machinery inside human cells. John is also a member of the Molecular Quantification Core here in the Microbiology building at CSU. He has trained many individual researchers here at CSU on how to use digital droplet PCR.
