Natalie David is a third year in the College studying biological sciences. She joined the Tirrell Lab in February 2013 and works under the guidance of postdoctoral fellow Dr. Bret Ulery. Her research focus is in the self-assembly of peptide amphiphile micelles and looks to examine immune response to administration of peptide amphiphile vaccines in biological models in the future. Her broader research interests include translational medicine, development of targeted disease therapies, and application of important tools of the physical sciences (e.g., mass spectrometry) for the investigation of biological problems.
