Natalia Martin

I received my doctoral training at the School of Biochemical and
Pharmaceutical Sciences, National University of Rosario (Argentina), where I studied protein lipoylation mechanisms in the Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis. In the 2012, I received a PEW postdoctoral fellowship to work at Dr. Alejandro Aballay's laboratory, where I began my postdoctoral training in the Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology.
As a postdoc in the Aballay lab, I am studying how genetic variation affects C. elegans susceptibility to bacterial infection. By using wild isolates that show differential susceptibility to bacterial infection, I plan to identify key components required to establish a coordinated immune response at the whole-animal level.
