About Julia Gardner
Julia is a senior undergraduate student at Duke University, where she studies chemistry and Chinese. Julia has been working as a researcher in Duke's Rajagopal Lab since her first year as an undergraduate. In the Rajagopal Lab, Julia studies the mechanisms of 'biased signaling' at GPCRs, with a specific focus on the chemokine receptor CXCR3. She recently led a project that demonstrated the GPCR kinases (GRKs) can translocate to endosomes, and that the subcellular localization of the GRKs affects a GPCR's biased signaling profile. Last summer, Julia worked at as the first-ever summer intern at Septerna, the GPCR-based biotechnology company founded by Duke Nobel laureate Dr. Robert Lefkowitz. In the fall, Julia will begin her MD/PhD training.
