I will be entering my sophomore year this Fall at the University of Arizona, and I am majoring in Neuroscience & Cognitive Science. I have been working in Dr. Lee Ryan’s Cognition and Neuroimaging Laboratory since my senior year of high school. In this laboratory, I study how having a family history of Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain
structure of cognitively healthy individuals. The Neuroscience & Cognitive Science Summer Research Program (NSCS SRP) has given me the opportunity to continue working in the laboratory. Through this work, I found that I have a passion for Alzheimer’s disease research that I plan to follow for the rest of my career. I aspire to attain a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science.
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
