Hiro started as a faculty member at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in late 2006. He likes to understand how molecules assemble to mediates cellular signaling underlying intriguing phenomena such as neuronal plasticity and neurodegeneration. He is also hoping to provide useful strategy to target protein molecules whose dysfunction causes neurological diseases and disorders.
Nami did her PhD study in Jeremy Tame’s group in Yokohama City University in Japan. She worked on the crystallographic study of an auto-transporter, Hbp, a beta-barrel membrane protein from a pathogenic E.coli. She joined the lab in May of 2011. Nami was also a recipient of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science postdocotral fellowship award.
Johanna completed her PhD in Biochemistry with Prof. Luca Pellegrini at Cambridge University where she worked on structural and functional analyses of proteins related to meiotic chromosome organization. Johanna joined the Furukawa lab in March of 2017.
Tsung-Han aka Eric completed his PhD with Prof. Edward Yu at Iowa State University where he worked on structural studies of proteins related to carbon concentration of green alga. Eric joined the Furukawa lab in July of 2017.

Jue X Wang
Jue grew up in a small town to the East of Berlin. She then decided to leave all the German bread and other clichés behind, and ventured out into the rain to receive her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Cambridge, UK. She is currently a PhD student at the Watson School of Biological Sciences and joined the Furukawa lab in August 2015. Jue was a recipient of the Boehringer Ingelheim predoctoral fellowship.
Noriko joined the Furukawa lab in March 2007. She is our super-technician who supports all aspects of research.
Adriana makes cell culture media and biochemical reagents, which are critical for all of our experiments.
Ming is the manager for the x-ray facility at CSHL. He also assists the famous x-ray crystallography course held at CSHL once a year.
After his PHD study in the DeRosier lab at Brandeis, Dennis went on conduct studies in the Baumeister lab at MPI of Biochemistry in Munich. Dennis has been the facility manager for the CSHL EM facility since 2017.
AnnMarie is our scientific administrator who carries out the organizational responsibilities of the laboratory.
