Advancing the understanding of Alzheimer's disease and related tauopathies.
BS in Biochemistry
I graduated in May from UF with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Minors in Pathogenesis and Sustainability Studies. I joined the Abisambra lab because I wanted to study neurodegenerative conditions and AD. During my time in the lab I examined the action of peptidyl-proline isomerases (PPIases, or cyclophilins) on tau aggregation in vitro.
I am currently a first year PhD student at the Boston University Medical Campus in the Program in Biomedical Sciences (research concentration/mentor, TBD).
For fun I like to spend time outside, exercise with friends, and try new recipes!
