2022 Award Recipients

Matthew Reynolds
2022 Alan Hall Travel Award

Matthew Reynolds is a PhD candidate in the lab of Dr. Gregory Alushin at The Rockefeller University. He is interested in the interplay between F-actin biochemistry and mechanics at the structural level. To investigate this interplay, he develops computational methods for visualizing F-actin bending deformations and filament bundling from cryo-EM data. At the Cell Bio conference, Matthew will be presenting his work “Bending forces and nucleotide state jointly regulate F-actin structure” as a Microsymposium talk and poster.

Natalie Ortiz Speer
2022 Norton B. Gilula Travel Award

Natalie Ortiz Speer is currently a Cell and Molecular Biology graduate student in the lab of Dr. Mike Henne at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX. Her doctoral work focuses on identifying and studying the function of distinct populations of lipid droplets within yeast cells. Natalie was born and raised in Whittier, CA, the daughter of Latino immigrants, and earned her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from UC San Diego in 2013. For ASCB/EMBO Cell Bio 2022, Natalie will present her graduate work in a trainee Symposium talk entitled "Identification of a novel regulator of triglyceride lipolysis that localizes to a specific sub-population of yeast lipid droplets".
