The department would also like to extend a warm welcome to another new assistant professor, Jenny Ross. Prof. Ross joins UMass from the Pennsylvania Muscle Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, where she worked as a postdoctoral fellow. Her group carries out experiments in biological physics, using advanced optical imaging techniques to study individual proteins and microtubules. Her recent work on tracking motor proteins, which shuttle cargo along filaments in cells, has won acclaim for showing how motors can navigate around obstacles in living cells. Welcome Jenny!
