Kate Buckley, PhD

As an undergraduate, Dr. Buckley studied biochemistry at Hood College in Frederick, MD. She became an evolutionary immunologist during her PhD work at George Washington University. After postdocs at the University of Toronto and Carnegie Mellon University, she moved to Auburn.

When not in the lab, you can find her scouring estate sales, turning bacon fat into soap, or with her cat Amelia Grace, who is objectively the best cat on the planet.

Amelia Williams

Amelia Williams is a Biomedical Sciences major from Birmingham, Alabama. To the confusion of the rest of the lab, her favorite class thus far has been Organic Chemistry. While the best thing about Amelia may be that she shares a name with Dr. Buckley’s cat, her work on the larval immune response to different pathogens is also excellent. She is planning to attend medical school and is considered the fan favorite amongst her peers in the lab.
