graduate researcH Intern
Taylor is a graduate research intern at Juvena Therapeutics, where she works on optimizing and validating proteomics pipelines to study mechanisms of action of Juvena Therapeutics’ lead pipeline of pro-regenerative biologics during the preclinical development phase. She first joined Juvena Therapeutics in June of 2018 as one of its first team members and spent a summer creating foundational high-throughput protein purification workflows. She continued on part-time as she finished her last year at Stanford, and has returned in 2019 as a graduate research intern preceding the start of her Master’s program.
Originally from Chicago, Taylor moved to the Bay Area to study biology at Stanford. She graduated with a bachelor’s of science in 2019 and is currently completing a master’s in bioengineering also at Stanford with the support of a scholarship, with a concentration in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. During her first two years of undergrad, she worked with Dr. Yousef in the Wyss-Coray laboratory to study the role of VCAM1 in brain aging and neuroinflammation and co-authored their paper published in May 2019 in Nature Medicine. Throughout the rest of her Stanford career, she’s enjoyed undertaking coursework and projects in synthetic biology, optogenetics, biodesign, and wound healing.
Outside of the lab, Taylor enjoys bouldering, watching bad movies, and scouring the internet for cheap flights.
