Barbar Lab Graduate Student, 2014-2019
Hello! I moved around a lot as a kid, but spent the majority of my time in Ohio where I went to Undergrad. At the University of Cincinnati I did research in Inorganic Chemistry, Environmental Remediation, and Botany (during a study abroad to Costa Rica). I'm a big fan of climbing rocks and travelling, and I love to hear about cool places. My main project in the Barbar lab deals with the way the rabies virus hijacks host proteins to facilitate its own growth. I recieved the Chateaubriand Fellowship which recently enabled me to do rabies virus work in France for 5 months. I also recieved the Robert and Clarice MacVicar Animal Health Scholar Award.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Gouaux Lab at OHSU in Portland
Sarah received a B.S. degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of California, Davis in 2011. She then completed an M.S. degree in Systems Engineering at George Washington University while working at a startup pharmaceutical company in Maryland that focused on the development of therapeutic antibodies. Sarah joined the Barbar Lab at Oregon State University in 2013. In her doctoral research, she explored the structure and dynamics of intrinsically disordered proteins using NMR spectroscopy. After receiving her Ph.D., Sarah joined the Gouaux lab in March 2018 to study the structure and function of transmembrane proteins.
