Research Interests

  1. Protein Engineering
  2. Vaccine Development & Immunology
  3. Biotechnology Process Development

Julie is working on developing a novel virus-like particle approach to an HIV vaccine using a viral fusion intermediate as the immunogen. This work is a collaboration with Prof. Peter Kim at Stanford University. She is also pursuing work related to understanding protein refolding and trimerization of a potentially broadly neutralizing flu antigen, as well as work to further stabilize this antigen and design a scalable process for manufacturing. Finally, she has recently begun work on a virus-like particle based vaccine for Zika virus.

Funding Sources

HIV Vaccine - Stanford BioX Program
Influenza Vaccine - Child Health Research Institute, through the Stanford SPARK Program and the Weston Havens Foundation
Zika Vaccine - Stanford SPARK Program
Julie's Personal Funding - NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program
