Zach is a graduate student in the lab. He is in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics Graduate Group. He is from York, Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Delaware with a B.S. in Chemistry in 2014. Zach conducted undergraduate research in David Colby's laboratory on detection and structural analysis of misfolded tau protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. Zach was a CBI Fellow (2016-2017). In 2017, Zach was awarded a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
