Research Interests

“I am currently researching the anterograde trafficking and localization of Botulinum neurotoxin. I became interested in Academia when I had the opportunity to partake in undergraduate research, studying the structure and function of (F4FBR8). I was also a teaching assistant for the Department of Chemistry at UW-Milwaukee where I really enjoyed teaching introductory chemistry to students. I joined the Barbieri lab because I find great interest in how toxins interact with host cells.”
