Jane R. Evans - Staff Research Associate. Jane is our lab manager and general keeper of all things important in the lab. In addition to working on characterization of antisera and sending out of HNF4 reagents, she performs Westerns and immunoprecipitations to characterize HNF4 in a variety of sources including cell lines and tissues.
