Nathan LeRoy

I am currently a graduate research assistant in the lab of Dr. Nathan Sheffield developing software to answer biological questions in cancer, epigenetics, development, and genomics.

About Me

My name is Nathan. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. I've lived in the midwest for almost the entirety of my life. I did my undergrad at Purdue University where I studied biological engineering. At Purdue, I worked for 4 years in the lab of Dr. Mathew Tantama designing genetically encoded optical sensors to study redox dynamics inside of live cells for use in neurodegenerative imaging studies. After graduation, I went on to work for the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) as a research associate supporting many of the molecular biology workflows for antibody design and discovery. Presently, I work as a graduate research assistant at the University of Virginia under Dr. Nathan Sheffield. We are developing software to answer biological questions in cancer, epigenetics, development, and genomics. Outside of work I love to work out, play guitar, and hang out with my cat Karen. I'm also always working on small personal hobby projects. Feel free to check those out below!

Contact Me

The best way to reach me is through email. I'm typically most responsive that way. Although, I linked my Twitter above, and I would most likely respond to a DM very promptly there, so feel free to contact me that way too. You can also follow me on Spotify as well ✌️
