Brittany Thompson


  1. B.S. Biochemistry, Kennesaw State University

Research Interests:

Brittany is a post-baccularate student participating in the Yale Post-baccularate Research Education Program at Yale University. Her current research in the Saltzman laboratory focuses on utilizing Poly(lactic acid)-Poly(ethylene glycol) (PLA-PEG) nanoparticles (NPs) encapsulating rapamycin to enhance delivery and localization of rapamycin to endothelial cells. Her contributions to this project will include three objectives (a) characterization of rapamycin encapsulated PLA-PEG NPs (RPLA-PEG NPs) (b) internalization of RPLGA-PEG NPs by endothelial cells and (c) RPLA-PEG NPs and anti-E selectin antibody conjugation.
