Norelle Wildburger, Ph.D.

Norelle is a postdoctoral fellow in the (Randall) Bateman Lab. She is leading a clinical study in a hospice population where participants are isotopically labeled prior to passing. The goal is to quantify neuronal metabolism, it’s correlation with tau tangles, and the half-life of amyloid plaques using SILK-SIMS imaging. In addition to this, she characterizes and quantifies pathologically relevant proteins in their intact state (i.e., Top-down) to characterize the full spectrum of proteoforms (all protein products of a single gene) in brain and cerebral spinal fluid.
