Dr. Nolan graduated magna cum laude from Smith College in 2000 with highest honors in chemistry and a minor in music. She received her Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Nolan pursued post-doctoral research at Harvard Medical School where she investigated the biosynthetic assembly of an antibiotic peptide that targets Gram-negative bacteria. 

Dr. Nolan joined the Department of Chemistry at MIT in 2009. Her current research involves synergies between metal ion homeostasis and immunity and the roles of host-defense peptides and metalloproteins in various biological phenomena. Some of Dr. Nolan’s most recent awards include being selected as an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellow in 2013 and a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar in 2014.  She is also the recipient of a 2016 Eli Lilly Award in Biological Chemistry.
