Headshot portrait of Jimmy He - Bio-X Undergraduate Fellow
2013 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Biology
Supported by: Dean of Research
Mentor: Gary Steinberg, Professor in Neurosurgery, Neurosciences, and Neurology

Jimmy He, a biology major, is working in Dr. Steinberg’s lab. This summer, he will learn tissue culture techniques as well as how to design and run effective experiments. His goal is to elucidate the role of ZNF521, one of several genes uniquely overexpressed in the vasculature of Moyamoya disease patients, in possible smooth muscle cell proliferation. Apart from Bio-X, Jimmy is learning golf and playing trombone in the summer Stanford Symphony Orchestra.
