Principal Investigator

Dr. Sarah Veatch is an Associate Professor of Biophysics and Physics and has been at the University of Michigan since 2010. She completed her PhD in Physics at the University of Washington with Sarah Keller, where she did pioneering work characterizing coexisting liquid phases in purified membrane vesicles. Sarah conducted  postdoctoral training with Barbara Baird and David Holowka at Cornell University, where she discovered that isolated cell plasma membranes are poised close to a miscibility critical point at growth temperatures.  She is currently the associate director of the Biophysics unit and director of the Biophysics graduate program at the University of Michigan.

Sarah has received numerous awards since joining the faculty at UM, including the Henry Russel Award of the University of Michigan Rackham Graduate School in 2017, the Howard Prize from Durham University in 2015, the Margaret Oakley Dayhoff award from the Biophysical Society in 2014, and the a Sloan Research Fellowship in 2012.  She is principle investigator on research grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
