Research Interests: My project seeks to investigate disruptions in molecular mechanisms that contribute to Rett syndrome, with a particular focus on the identification of potential therapeutic avenues that could alleviate the symptoms of the condition.
B.S. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Research Interests: My project focuses on the protein Cited2, and its role in cortical development. This protein has known functions in other organs, but is novel in the brain. We aim to explore several aspects of how Cited2 functions in the developing brain, from molecular mechanisms to its effects on behavior as an adult. In addition, we will explore how those mechanisms and behaviors are altered by maternal nutrition.
Research Interests: Camerin is currently a Junior at Syracuse University. She joined the lab because she is interested in genetics and neuroscience. Camerin hopes to pursue a Ph. D in molecular biology.
