Postdoctoral Research Associate

As a graduate student, Nathan employed Saccharomyces cerevisiae (brewer's yeast) as a model organism to study the effects of bacterial secreted effector proteins on host cell biology. As a postdoc, Nathan studies the human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans, focusing primarily on hyphal morphogenesis and its relation to sexual reproduction and virulence.
