Gabriella will participate in a 10-week summer research program as part of her continued research training in the Chapkin lab. “Her research will focus on using super-resolution microscopy to probe the molecular mechanisms by which dietary/microbial bioactives alter protein and lipid nanoclustering in cell membranes.”
