Natalie is one of three trainees awarded with the Chemical Biology Program training grant for the 2022-2023 academic year. During this fellowship, Natalie will be cross training with Dr. Igor Vorobyov, who works with voltage gated ion channels. Voltage gated ion channels are heavily edited by ADAR2, but the impact editing has on the channels is not well known. Natalie will be doing atomistic modeling of edited and non-edited channels to try to determine the impact editing has on these proteins.

Congratulations, Natalie!
