Natasha George graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz in June 2017 with a B.S. in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Sciences and in Earth Sciences. Natasha’s undergraduate research focused on identifying epitopes of neutralizing antibodies to respiratory syncytial virus attachment protein (RSV G). Her current research project investigates RSV G mimicry of a human chemokine. Natasha is interested in the Microbiology and Molecular Genetics Program through the BMS Gateway Program. She hopes to combine her experience in biochemistry with her passion for microbial life, and is especially excited about the Parent, Reguera, and Kazem labs.
