Credentials: PhD Student - Grinblat lab
I am studying development of zebrafish, specifically looking at the transcription factor Zic2 and its impact on neural and craniofacial development.
Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in iBio?
The collaborative nature that is inherent in a cross discipline program will give me the opportunity to work on a wider range of projects and give me access to more diverse resources than in a traditional program.
Why or what do you love about the program?
It is a highly customizable program that will tailor my graduate studies to help me prepare for the future and learn a lot about what I am studying very quickly.
Future Plans: I am still trying to figure out whether I want to go into academia or industry, but I would love to be the head of my own lab someday!
Fun Fact: I just got married! (June 4th, 2022)
