Congratulations to Alisa Mo, a neuroscience MD/PhD student working in Jeremy Nathans lab for winning the Michael J. Shanoff Young Investigator's Day Award.
Mentor: Jeremy Nathans
Project Details: I developed a new method to capture nuclei from targeted cell types and combined it with genome-sequencing techniques to explore global variations in gene expression, DNA methylation and regulatory networks across brain neurons. This work gives insight into neuronal diversity in the brain and could provide valuable insight into neuropsychiatric disorders. Learn more about Alisa's work and the Jeremy Nathan Lab.
What’s Next: Currently, I am a third year medical student, and in the fall, I will be applying for residency programs.
