Antavius Cain

Welcome to
Antavius Cain!

Without even officially starting, I had an opportunity to take on Ant as a rotation student. Best major decision as a new PI! The extra set of hands to get everything set up was a bonus. It is his expertise and knowledge in mammalian cell culture that I am excited to see in action, bringing some of our lab projects to life!

Opening August 1, 2023!

Lab is getting packed up, ready to send to UGA!
