Batbold Boldbaatar

Undergraduate Education: Drexel University
Major: Biology
Hometown: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Batbold is an MD-PhD student in Dr. Lawreen Connors’ lab in the BU Amyloidosis Center and has been adopted by the Murphy lab in late 2017. Together with Ricardo, he is interested in understanding the pathophysiology underlying transthyretin-related amyloidosis. Specifically, he is focusing his efforts on elucidating the effects of a SNP known as rs3764479 in the context of wild-type transthyretin (ATTRwt) amyloidosis and believes that patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells will give him a unique insight into this not well-understood disease.

When he’s not in working in the lab, you may find Batbold at an all-you- can-eat sushi place, hiking, reading a good book, or just trying something new. He’s also very much into wildlife documentaries.

Murphy Lab Awarded Amyloidosis Foundation Grant

“Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Modeling of Human Hereditary Amyloidosis”
This project will generate a new form of stem cells that start out as skin or blood cells but are then reprogrammed into cells that have the ability to become any type of tissue in the body. These stem cells will be utilized to study a genetic disease through the directed differentiation of these cells in vitro in order to recapitulate the outcome of the disease. Possible benefits of this research are new ways to study treatments for genetic diseases such as familial amyloidosis.
