My name is Carly and I am a senior here at the University of Arizona majoring in Neuroscience with minors in Spanish and Biochemistry! I am an undergraduate researcher in Dr. Daniela Zarnescu’s lab where we study the neurodegenerative disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) using fly models. Our research looks at various celular and genetic mechanisms in the disease and also potential treatments for ALS.
Some other things I do outside of lab includes being a Science and Spanish tutor and I am the co-president of a premedical club on campus. My hobbies include knitting, working out, and cooking (specifically Middle Eastern and Mexican food).
