Prep program entry year: 2022
Purdue University - Behavioral Neuroscience
Mentor: Changiz Geula
Research Project Description:
My research interests have focused on studying underlying mechanisms, pathology and pathobiology of neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Previously, I have worked with biological and behavioral approaches in rodent models to study these mechanisms. I have since become interested in incorporating more interdisciplinary approaches into my work such as molecular genetics, neurochemical, and in vitro cell culture techniques. I hope to contribute to future understanding, treatment, and prevention of neurodegenerative disease with my research.
Why did I choose NUIN for my studies?
I chose NU PREP because after my undergraduate studies I wanted to have another year to further develop my research skills, and myself as a competitive applicant to graduate programs. My interests being in neuroscience, NUIN PREP provided me with all the interdepartmental resources, opportunities, and guidance I needed to further develop my skills in research. This alongside personalized mentorship provided me with the experience I needed to enhance myself for competitive graduate programs.
