Undergraduate Education: Boston University
Major: Neuroscience
Hometown: Allentown, PA
Position: Undergraduate Student Researcher

Sabrina joined Murphy Lab in May 2018 to work with Rich on his quest to understand ATTR amyloidosis and has been slowly morphing into a younger version of him ever since. She is a rising junior at BU with an interest in neurodegenerative diseases and hopes to continue working on this in the future.

Sabrina enjoys traveling, the buffalo chicken fingers at Chequers, watching bad movies (and learning how to make good ones), and thrift shopping.

Murphy Lab Receives New NIH Grant

Boston University researchers, led by Drs. George J. Murphy and Martin Steinberg, have developed a way to test treatments for sickle cell disease – a genetic disorder of the blood – by working with pluripotent stem cells grown from a small amount of the patient’s own blood.  Click on the picture to link to the full article.

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.
