Lynn Ulatowski graduated in 1991 with a BS in Molecular Biology/Biotechnology from Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA. In 2003 she earned a MS in Nutrition from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, and in 2012, graduated with a PhD in Molecular Nutrition from Case Western Reserve University. Her Dissertation topic was: Regulation of Vitamin E and Tocopherol Transfer protein, for which she received the Academic Excellence Award. From 2012-2015  Lynn worked as a Post-doctoral fellow at Case Western Reserve University, researching Vitamin E transport in the central nervous system, which is particularly relevant to oxidative stress associated diseases like Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Down's Syndrome. Her research also includes delineating how modifications of Tiam1 GEF influences activation of Rho GTPases and progression of colon cancer. This research aims to develop therapeutic inhibitors of Tiam1 to attenuate tumorgenesis.
Lynn has served as adjunct faculty at Notre Dame College, Cuyahoga Community College, and Case Western Reserve University.
