Laura Dunphy is a fourth year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering. In Jason Papin’s lab, she is developing systems biology approaches to study infectious disease. Laura is integrating computational and experimental analyses to study the relationship between bacterial metabolism and antibiotic resistance in the opportunistic human pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Prior to starting her PhD at UVa, she completed her undergraduate degree in Biological Engineering from MIT. Laura is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, 2018 Wagner Fellow, and serves as the elected Professional and Career Development Chair of the UVa Graduate Biomedical Engineering Society.
