Natalie R. Melton, BS
- Research Technician
Natalie recently graduated from the University of Richmond with a B.S. in Biology. During her undergraduate years, she studied the interactions between MYO19 and Miro2, two proteins that localize to the mitochondrial membrane and facilitate the movement of the mitochondria along the cytoskeleton. At the the University of Pittsburgh, she currently serves as a Research Technician. Under the direction of Dr. Michelle Manni, she study severe asthma and acute asthma exacerbations using murine models.
