Natalia Fuentes is an undergraduate at Harvard College studying Integrative Biology with a secondary in Ethnicity, Migration and Rights. She works in collaboration with the Tewhey Lab in Bar Harbor, Maine. Her work utilizes massively parallel reporter assays (MPRA) to evaluate the transcriptional power of putative cis-regulatory sequences generated using machine-learning methods. Along with empirical tests, she uses computational analyses to build quantitative profiles of novel regulatory sequences. She’s largely interested in working to understand and characterize human regulatory regions by employing synthetic biology to develop foundational knowledge of non-coding regions. Natalia’s work has been largely supported by the NSF and the Harvard College Research Program (HCRP).
