Lulu Cambronne, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular Biosciences in the College of Natural Sciences. Her current research focuses on understanding how metabolites impact cellular signaling cascades and epigenetic regulation. The approach is to track the subcellular availability of specific metabolites using new fluorescent biosensors developed by the lab.

Dr. Cambronne received a Hon.B.Sc in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto, a Ph.D. with Wade Harper from the Division of Medical Sciences at Harvard University, and received postdoctoral training under Richard Goodman in microRNA target identification as well as NAD+ biology at the Vollum Institute. Dr. Cambronne has been honored both at the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral levels with individual Kirschstein National Service Research Awards, Albert J Ryan and Samuel Lunenfeld Fellowships, and named the 2013 OHSU New Inventor of the year for her development and commercialization of the RISC-trap/miR-trap assay to empirically identify targets for specific microRNAs in cells. She is a 2017 recipient of the NIH Director's New Innovator Award and a 2020 Pew Fellow.
