Hey! My name is Nicole Carmiol, and I’m a Senior at the U of A, majoring in Neuroscience & Cognitive Science. I’ve also got interests in Molecular & Cellular Biology and Bioinformatics, which, luckily, is the type of work I get to do in the Capaldi Lab. For a little over a year now, I’ve been studying a cell signaling system called the Protein Kinase A pathway, and we’re looking at how it integrates nutrient inputs to produce specific signaling outputs. When I’m not experimenting in the lab, you can usually find me experimenting with new recipes at home— I love to cook and share what I make. Aside from that, I enjoy road trips, exploring new places around town, and spending time with my family and friends.
