2016 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Bioengineering
Supported by: Ted & Colleen Friedel
Mentor: Karl Deisseroth, Bioengineering and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences

Anna’s project focuses on screening a maximally diverse population of mice during behavioral tests to discover genetic determinants of specific psychiatric disorders. She will also be mapping the corresponding structural deficits by visualizing morphological changes in the brain.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2016:
