Christine Heitsch, Ph.D.
School of Mathematics
Christine Heitch’s work lies at the interface between discrete mathematics and molecular biology; She is interested in combinatorial problems "as motivated by" and "with applications to" fundamental biomedical questions like RNA folding.
The Petit Institute Breakfast Club seminar series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind and started to feature local Petit Institute faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but rarely present at their home institution, this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. The Petit Institute Breakfast Club is open to anyone in the bio-community.
