Srivalli Mukkavilli studied Pharmacy in India. She is currently working with a Dr. John Bang’s group as a second year graduate student in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at North Carolina Central University. She is currently working on her thesis focusing on the conformational effects on the level of βA aggregate formation by using an Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) based anti-DMPO adduct antibody detection method. From her study, she hopes to better understand the relative affinity of different βA proteins that can be used for finding a treatment method for AD.
