Chemical Mechanisms Underlying Disease

Seattle AWIS is excited to host Tammi van Neel and Tianzi Zhang, as they share insights into their work exploring the Chemical Mechanisms that Underlie Disease.

Tammi  received a B.S. in Chemistry from Florida State University in 2017. While at FSU she participated in research focused on glucagon immunoassays using capillary electrophoresis with Dr. Michael Roper. Here at UW, she focuses on developing technologies capable of sequestering small molecule signals in complex microenvironments.

Tianzi received a BA in Chemistry from Cornell College in 2015. While at Cornell College, she did research in studying organic synthesis for solvatochromic dyes (solutes that change colors when dissolved in solvents with different polarities). She also interned in the Quality Control Lab at Integrated DNA Technologies. She is currently working on developing microfluidic devices to understand cell signaling mechanisms in human kidney pathology and pulmonary fibrosis.
