Lauras researches the genetic differences in drug transporter proteins located at the blood-brain barrier, a structure of cells that protects the brain from invading microbes and unwanted molecules such as toxins.  

Having been passionate about art and science, Laura joined Art Meets Science to combine her two passions.  

Thinking ahead to the exhibition, Laura is excited to see the work created by the artists and hoping to see the different aspects of the research that has inspired their art.
