Julie Craft Van De Weghe, PhD

Julie Craft Van De Weghe is the postdoctoral research fellow in the Doherty lab. She recently joined the lab in early 2016 after completing her PhD in cellular biology at the University of Georgia. At UGA she spent time investigating the adaptive immune response to Trypansoma cruzi infection before finding her scientific passion as a cilia cellular biologist. Julie spent her graduate career investigating intraflagellar transport, the transport system of cilia, and how this system regulates how much cargo to load and deliver during ciliary growth. She now is focused on determining the unifying cellular mechanism of Joubert Syndrome by analyzing the cilia of patient cells across different genetic causes. In her spare time, she enjoys judging science fairs, making custom pinatas, looking at old slides on her projector, creating unconventional art, exploring Seattle with her husband and canine companion, playing obscure board games, eating dry-aged haribo gummy bears, and listening to records.
