Michael Doyle, BS

Graduate Student

Michael Doyle is a graduate student in the department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology. He graduated from Penn State University in 2014 with a B.S. in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. Upon graduation, Michael joined the laboratory of Dr. Song Tan at Penn State as a research technician, where he used crystallography as a tool to study how chromatin-modifying enzymes interact with their nucleosome substrates. He joined Vanderbilt’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (IGP) in 2016, and subsequently joined the Crowe Lab in 2017. The focus of his research is on the human antibody response to henipaviruses, namely Hendra and Nipah. He aims to use his findings to develop novel therapeutics and inform rational vaccine design against these highly pathogenic viruses for which no treatments exist.
