Raquel Lieberman, PhD

Raquel L. Lieberman received her bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1998, and her doctoral degree in chemistry from Northwestern University in Chicago (2005), where she worked with Prof. Amy C. Rosenzweig on biophysical and structural studies of an intramembrane metalloenzyme. After conducting postdoctoral work with Prof. Michael S. Wolfe (Center for Neurological Diseases, Harvard Medical School) and Prof. Gregory A. Petsko (Brandeis) where she expanded to molecular aspects of protein misfolding, she joined the faculty in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgia Institute of Technology and is currently an associate professor. Research projects in Dr. Lieberman’s lab focus on molecular aspects of proteins implicated in misfolding disorders.
