RESEARCH

I joined the lab as a technician after graduating from UC Irvine in 2017. I plan to go to dental school. As an undergraduate researcher in the Hunt lab, I performed mouse colony management, genotyping, histology and animal surgeries. I am now helping develop a stem cell therapy for epilepsy.
