Logan Richards

Logan is a graduate student researcher working in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles. He studies the structure of fibrillar aggregates found in the systemic amyloid disease ALECT2. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the University of California, Irvine. As an undergraduate he spent two years doing X-Ray crystallography work in the lab of Thomas Poulos studying the structures of interesting P450 enzyme mutants. Logan uses new methods in structure determination, such as micro-electron diffraction (MicroED) in order to gain new insight into the structural basis for this disease.
