I received my B.S. degree in Biology and Neuroscience from the University at Albany in 2015. During my undergraduate studies, I contributed to a lab that focused on characterizing cells of the olfactory system in transgenic mouse lines to study normal and pathological development of the nose and GnRH-1 system. During my gap year, I worked at a bioscience company that produced transgenic mice for pharmaceutical research. My past experience has thus led me to my interest in the use of mouse models to study tumor development and migration in the brain. Next year, after my completion of the Non-Thesis CMMB Master’s Program here at USF, I plan on continuing my education in a Ph.D. program that will study the potential of stem cell therapy for the treatment of gliomas.
