Ep. 58: “Redesigning Proteins” Featuring Dr. Jamie Spangler

Jamie Spangler


Dr. Jamie Spangler is an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins. Her lab implements a unique structure-based engineering approach to elucidate the determinants of protein activity and inform drug development. She talks about designing cytokine mimetics and how engineered cytokines could be used as therapeutics.
