About John Froberg
I graduated from Northwestern University, where I studied nucleosome positioning and epigenetic silencing with Dr. Jonathan Widom. Because I can't get enough snowstorms and harsh winters, I moved to Boston from Chicago and I began a PhD in Harvard's Biological and Biomedical Sciences program in 2011. In the Lee lab, I study the biochemistry of RNA-protein complexes involved in X-inactivation.Publications
