2014 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Bioengineering
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Daria Mochly-Rosen, Chemical & Systems Biology

Tatum Banayat's research in Dr. Mochly-Rosen's lab is investigating the effect of rationally designed peptides from glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase on inhibiting the inactivation of G6PD by tumor suppressor p53. Several conditions are impacted by G6PD deficiency, including hemolytic anemia, kernicterus, and jaundice.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2014:
