Dr. Beacham is broadly interested in cell and developmental biology and in understanding molecular mechanisms underlying diseases. She received her PhD from Cornell University for her work in Gunther Hollopeter’s lab where she studied clathrin-mediated endocytosis using C. elegans as a model system.

Manipulating vascular endocytosis to direct blood and immune cell migration.
