Adjoint Professor, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Postdoctoral Fellow, NASA Ames Research Center, Space Biology and Immunology PhD University of Southern Mississippi, Molecular Biology BSc University of Alberta, Immunology


Dr. Paul is a currently a postdoctoral fellow at NASA Ames Research Center and Adjoint Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Her research focuses on the immune and nervous system responses to different spaceflight conditions, including altered gravity and radiation, and identifying potential countermeasures to strengthen astronaut health during long-term, deep-space missions. Dr. Paul has 10 years of experience working on mammalian immunology, molecular biology, neurology, and virology. Her work at Ames has been focused on multiple blood immunological methods and studies utilizing RNA-sequencing and omics with NASA’s GeneLab. She’s had multiple years of training in microgravity models, including hindlimb unloading and rotating wall vessels, radiation experience at NSRL, and R-based software for space and ground omics. She is proficient at flow cytometric analyses and multiple molecular methods. Her previous research focused on neuroimmunological and neuroviral models, including multiple sclerosis (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, EAE), human immunodeficiency virus, Dengue virus, West Nile virus and Zika virus.
