I am a third-year Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major at the University Park campus. I am an undergraduate researcher in the Hanna-Rose lab where I study Inborn Errors of Purine Metabolism in the nematode C. elegans. My project aims to use C. elegans to investigate the molecular mechanisms responsible for the neuromuscular phenotypes associated with ADSSL1-Myopathy, a rare muscular disorder.
I can provide assistance with identifying research interests and contacting potential faculty mentors. I am also happy to assist with applications for the Erickson Discovery Grant, BMB Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, and REU/SURF programs.
