Grad School Milestone Completed: Joined a research group(s)

I have officially joined two research groups! I will be co-supervised by Dr. Marc Tatar and Dr. Karla Kaun.  

I am so incredibly excited to really get to dig deep into a project with such a stimulating and creative group of scientists! I am especially thrilled because of how interdisciplinary the two groups are.  Members of the labs span the departments of  Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Neuroscience, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biotechnology.   

I feel so grateful to be able to explore one of the most  elusive mysteries in biology: the brain. And due to working with experts in such wide ranging fields, we will be able to explore neuropathology from a myriad of perspectives, and I get to be one of these lab coat wearing scientists! Together maybe we can figure out the elephant that is neurodegenerative disease!
