Current Officers (2023-2024)

Diana Łomowska-Keehner


Diana researches bacterial terpenoid biosynthesis in Streptomyces with a focus on terpene synthases and cytochromes P450. Outside of lab, she enjoys walks in nature and reading.


Jarin Tasnim Rintuna

Social media Manager

Jarin is currently working at Savin's Lab. She focuses on designing protein-polymer biohybrid materials that exhibit tailored morphologies owing to their amphiphilic properties. Beyond her scientific pursuits, Jarin takes pleasure in music and travel during her leisure time.

Dr. Matthew Eddy

Faculty Advisor

Dr. Eddy's knowledge and guidance have helped us to create Fellows of Chemical Biology. His research focuses on structural biology of human membrane receptor proteins, known as GPCRs, to understand their drug-binding mechanisms and their functions in cell signaling.


Past Officers


Nidhi Kalia

Vice President

Nidhi works on the chemical and  kinetic characterization of Nsp15 endoribonuclease from SARS-CoV-2. She uses mechanistic enzymology to understand the functional properties and define the catalytic mechanism of Nsp15. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, travelling, and photography. She is also the member of Badminton Club at UF and enjoys to play badminton and basketball after lab and on the weekends.


Nessa Pesaran Afsharian


Nessa is a structural biologist. She is interested in application of NMR and Single molecule fluorescence to study structure, function, and dynamics of GPCR and non-GPCR membrane proteins. In her free time, she enjoys discovering nature and dancing.
