Chloe graduated summa cum laude with honors from Wake Forest University in May 2019 majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and minoring in Dance. At Wake, Chloe worked in the Department of Biology as an undergraduate researcher for three years. Her work utilized bio-computational tools to investigate inter-genotype diversity in rotavirus outer capsid proteins on the amino acid level. Chloe defended an honors thesis on her research in rotavirus and was given the Senior Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Research in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Following graduation, she came to the NIH where she now works with Dr. Pravitt Gourh in the Scleroderma Genomics and Health Disparities Unit. Broadly, Chloe is interested in understanding the underlying genetic and molecular mechanisms of complex diseases and how advances in basic science research can lead to important clinical applications.
