Dr. Natalie Strunnikova joined our laboratory in the fall of 1997. She had received her Ph.D. from John's Hopkins in Baltimore. Natalie used a new variation of the yeast two hybrid system to study interactions between known proteins. She also searched for new proteins involved in mammary gland development, apoptosis and tumorigenesis.
Natalie left the lab in October 1999 to join the National Eye Institute.
