Virginia Casablancas


Virginia is a doctoral student with the Systems Approaches to Biomedical Science CDT and had joined the group for her first rotation to study the mechanisms of amyloid protein aggregation and inhibition using NMR, mass spectrometry and computational tools. She is jointly supervised by Andy Baldwin as well as collaborators at LillyUK and continues to collaborate with the Benesch group.
Virginia completed an MRes in Molecular Biophysics at King’s College London, funded by a LaCaixa Fellowship for Postgraduate Studies in Europe. During her masters thesis in Prof. James McDonnell’s lab, she focused on the structural asymmetry and allostery of the immunoglobulin E constant region.
